Living in a noise-filled world isn't just annoying--it can also be hazardous to your health. To create a safe haven from the onslaught of noise, Blue Forest designed the world's first Quiet Treehouse, an enchanting and acoustically engineered timber structure. The cocoon-like treehouse was created in collaboration with John Lewis and the Britain-based nonprofit Quiet Mark, and will be donated to The Chestnut Tree House Children's Hospice in West Sussex.
Luxury treehouse design and construction firm Blue Forest has charmed us before with their beautiful timber structures and this year’s Quiet Treehouse is no exception. Inspired by the shape of a small coppice of trees, the gorgeous rounded treehouse sits on top three ribbed tree trunk structures. The cozy and contemporary treehouse is also equipped with next generation sound engineering to insulate children and families from harmful excessive noise.
Faced with the additional challenge of constructing a treehouse that could be easily dismantled for a temporary show but rugged enough to be rebuilt for permanent outdoor use, the designers built the treehouse to stand independently of a host tree. The treehouse construction materials were donated by many famous and sustainable brands, including Kebony, Acoustiblok, and Rockwool.
