A truly remarkable structure will appear at the Royal Horticultural Show in Hampton Court this summer. A vast and ethereal treehouse, made from sustainable Kebony, was constructed by Blue Forest Luxury Treehouses and recently unveiled at London’s Ideal Home Show. It features the latest in quiet technology from Quiet Mark’s partners, interior fittings by John Lewis and materials from a range of pioneers in eco-friendly and soundproof construction.
The final destination of the treehouse will nestle among the treetops at the Chestnut children’s hospice in Sussex. Its peaceful ambience combines modern luxuries with a proximity to nature to create a transcendent and magical world, contained within a strikingly beautiful feat of architecture; spellbinding, sustainable and most importantly, silent.
Blue Forest is the world’s leading luxury treehouse designers and eco-home builders, which reflect the environments in which they are built. Kebony’s unrivalled eco-credentials and gorgeous aesthetic appeal were thus important facets for consideration in the selection of materials for this project.
Kebony Radiata formed the decking and exterior ribs of the treehouse with Kebony Scots Pine giving character to the cladding on the main structure. The wood’s innovative technology revolves around enhancing the properties of sustainable softwood species to give them the characteristics of the best performing tropical hardwood.
Since tropical hardwoods are becoming increasingly unacceptable in architectural and project design, Kebony is the choice of many leading architects and designers internationally.
