Scott Kyson, founder of architecture practice Studio Kyson, has built this children’s playhouse from charred timber and smoked mirrors at his family home in Epping Forest
Earlier this month the 4.5m by 2.7m structure, dubbed the Treehouse, was temporarily moved to Old Street in London as part of an exhibition celebrating the practice’s 10th anniversary.
Kyson described the open-topped building as ’an abstract take on a traditional concept, using a material palette of charred timber (Shou Sugi Ban) and smoked mirrors’ which explored ’the raw design principles of form, light and texture’.
The scheme cost less than £10,000 in materials to build.
