Tyler Arboretum Tree House
Totally Terrific Treehouse
Tyler Arboretum, 2010
Tyler Arboretum is reprising its successful “Totally Terrific Treehouses” Exhibit this summer at the Media Pennsylvania 650 acre oasis of natural beauty. CuetoKEARNEYdesign is providing pro bono design services for the Tyler volunteer’s “Backyard Memories”, a treehouse based on the volunteer’s childhood memories.
Working closely with the group of retired but hard working volunteers, CKd designed the fun and sustainable exhibit using recycled and found materials including lumber and posts milled from fallen hemlock trees on the site. The design features a hideaway open clubhouse with a green roof and a lookout perch accessed by a spiral stair lent by the Iron Shop in Broomall.
The design team includes Ann Rothmann, structural engineer and Geoff Anderson, landscape architect with Rodney Robinson Landscape Architects.
