A contemporary treehouse was unveiled at last week’s RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower show in London. Designed by Blue Forest, one of the the world’s leading luxury treehouse and eco-home builders, the treehouse was the central feature at the show. 

The Tunbridge Wells-based company, Blue Forest, is known for creating treehouses which reflect the environment in which they are built, aiming to bring people closer to the natural world and the great outdoors.

This exceptional acoustically-designed structure has been specifically developed to offer a vision of a quieter style of living, featuring the products that we all rely on, but without the unwanted noise.

Nestled in a peaceful oasis of naturalistic forest planting and sculptured landscaping, designed by David Domoney of ITV’s Love Your Garden, the giant treehouse is a special quiet escape from the noise of our busy world.

With environmental credentials and sustainability a key consideration in all of their designs, Kebony was selected for the exterior of the building; a sustainable alternative to tropical hardwood and toxic treated timber. The technology behind the wood is an innovative process that enhances the properties of sustainable softwood species to give them similar characteristics to tropical hardwoods.

The contemporary treehouse offers a beautiful sanctuary for wildlife including a bee wall, houses for solitary bees and wood stacks for frogs, toads and hedgehogs in the surrounding feature garden.

Adrian Pye, head of international sales at Kebony, said: “It has been a very exciting project for Kebony to be involved in and seeing the luxury Blue Forest treehouse in the wonderful RHS setting at Hampton Court, surrounded by the some of the most prestigious gardens. It will demonstrate how innovations such as Kebony can be integrated with a building’s natural environment”.

Simon Payne, director at Blue Forest, said: “Our bespoke treehouses are designed to blend in and reflect their secluded locations. We only use only the highest quality products to ensure that they are able to withstand and not damage the environment. Kebony was a fitting choice for this project because of its strength and environmental credibility. It’s organic, natural beauty means that it looks fantastic amongst the stunning array of gardens on display at RHS.”
