The Quiet Treehouse, A Next-Generation Tree-Home Designed To Block Noise Pollution
The Quiet Treehouse is the result of collaboration between Blue Forest, a design and construction company based in the UK , the noise abatement specialist Quiet Mark and John Lewis, Britain’s best loved department store who teamed up to build a fantastical concept tree-home, a home designed to block noise pollution.
Blue Forest, known for hundreds of eco-friendly treehouses around the world, envisioned “a tranquil tree home … designed to evoke the mystery and magic of a natural woodland environment“, inspired by the shape of a small coppice of trees, a natural phenomenon where three tree trunks support a bubble-shaped capsule.
With quiet appliances, including a top-notch sound system to block out noise pollution, this quiet retreat was build with construction materials donated by many famous and sustainable brands, including Kebony, Acoustiblok, and Rockwool.
Contrary to its name, which also refers to a real tree in appearance, the building with a contemporary shape can be installed regardless of the presence or absence of a tree.
Outfitted with an array of features that drown out modern life’s most irritating noises and with a design that resembles the wooded vegetation of the English countryside, eliminating the sharp distinction that usually exists between the natural and the artificial and with a “modern and luxuriously equipped” interior, the Quiet Treehouse is an “extraordinary tribute to the serene and ultimate luxury of quiet.”
The unique treehouse has been donated to the Chestnut Tree House Children’s Hospice in West Sussex, UK. Considering that “many temporary structures for shows are designed to only be up for a short while and are then dismantled and the material thrown out which is a tremendous waste” as Andy Payne, Blue Forest’s says, the initiative to give the structure to the community when it has outlived its show days is laudable.
