Cambria’s help on Charity Treehouse Project

July 28th, 2017

Cambria Consulting have designed a children’s playground area/treehouse on the site of the newly built Ronald McDonald House at University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff. The treehouse was designed with Austin-Smith:Lord Architects as part of Contractor Willmott Dixon’s charity programme. Three of Willmott Dixon’s teams from Cardiff, Bristol and Exeter have all designed their own charity projects in their respective offices and sites.

The brief was to design an outdoor area for the children being treated at the Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital and the neo-natal intensive care unit at the hospital. Ronald McDonald House is the first in Wales and will help to provide a free ‘home away from home’ accommodation for the children and families using the unit.

The timber frame treehouse play area was constructed over a period of two weeks by groups of volunteers using as many recycled materials from the Ronald McDonald House building as possible. The treehouse has three pods at increasing levels wrapping around a central existing tree. Each pod has a different theme painted on the interior and even incorporates a recycled slide.
