Treehouses, Center Parcs, Sherwood Forest

The treehouses were constructed via a two-storey timber frame built off a concrete transfer slab which was constructed on seven concrete columns positioning the units circa 3 metres above the forest floor.

Treehouse facades and roofs were then clad in timber shingles and shakes with timber window/ doors (all to FSC certification) to ensure units blended in with the forest environment.

The main body of each treehouse contained four bedrooms all with ensuite facilities, large lounge area complete with a log burner sat within a feature chimney breast, kitchen, dining room, cloaks and WC. Externally, sat on a decked area accessed via the lounge sliding doors, is a private sauna and jacuzzi facility along with a seating area. Accessed from this area via a raised walkway is a separate games den – housing TV and music systems, pool table and bar facilities.

The units were fully fitted out including bespoke built-in furniture to an extremely high standard with all designs and materials being vetted closely by leading interior designer – Target Living.

The units were designed to a high energy efficient standard and utilised sustainable systems, such as photo voltaic panels and ground source heat pumps.
