'Treehouse' takes residency in Nine Elms for every day throughout June. It is a place of contrasts, a space in which to explore, to play, or simply take a moment to reflect. The Treehouse is a pavilion for everyone to experience architecture, and offers a new perspective on the individual, city and identity.
Architecturally, the Treehouse is an abstract take on a traditional concept. Its material palette of charred timber (Shou Sugi Ban) and smoked mirrors, explores the principles of form, light and texture. The Treehouse expresses these with a series of contrasts; solid and void, dark and light, rough and smooth. A nomadic pavilion, the reflections in the smoked mirrored exterior mean the Treehouse is immediately embedded in its new context.
The Treehouse is designed and crafted by members of London practice Studio Kyson

A beautiful pairing of contemporary music performance and architecture - not to be missed!
