Treehouses are an ever-fascinating architectural form, whether they’re built by tech companies or 19th-century restaurateurs. But rarely do we see an authentic house-built-in-a-tree as livable and covetable as this one designed by Paris-based firm Atelier Lavit. The clients requested an aerial retreat with the feeling of an upscale hotel room. Inspired by the look and construction of birds’ nests, the architect got to work creating a 250-square-foot space built around a 100-year-old oak.
Built on a mountainside at China’s Songhua Lake Resort, this striking building was designed to offer summer and winter visitors a place to rest and reflect on the scenic surroundings. It can also serve as a flexible event space for meetings, exhibitions, workshops, and more. The architects—META-Project—conceived the structure as a kind of stage, raised on a concrete plinth and flaring out in a fan shape toward the view of the valley below.
Montreal-based firm MU Architecture sure knows how to make a modern woodsy retreat. For one of their latest projects, a lakeside home near the Montreal border, the firm combined contemporary materials like black timber and glass with local granite to create a sort of homegrown modern effect. The 4,500-square-foot house is two stories, a rectangular volume partially set into the slope of the hillside. The lake-facing side of the home features large glass windows taking advantage of the view.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
