HSC Designs’ Tree House brings contemporary design to the traditional kid’s play area.

Inspired by the patterns and sub-patterns of a tree, this installation has branching platforms for children's play. The Tree House’s various platform sizes are designed to evoke feelings of surprise and encourage movement similar to that observed in the migration and playful discovery patterns of birds and animals. The play area includes interactive elements, such as climbing hooks, ropes and slides, and can be grounded, or perform the tree house's traditional function, mounted in a tree.

This piece of outdoor furniture is made from solely recycled materials, including scaffolding from site scrap and recycled concrete. The polish of the concrete is accomplished with coconut oil (an old technique) to achieve the installation's aim of conjuring nostalgia whilst not depleting the earth's resources.
