Our ‘Quiet Treehouse’ moves to Kew Gardens

The ‘Quiet Treehouse’ that we created in 2014 to showcase Quiet Mark approved appliances and acoustic interior design has been donated to the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. We searched long and hard for a fitting place for the treehouse to be rehomed and we are delighted that Kew will be the beneficiary.

Renamed the ‘Woodland House’, it offers a blissful haven away from noise. It opens to the public later this summer, close to a new Woodland Walk and Badger Sett, and will provide a space in which visitors can learn about native British woodland.

We are thrilled that the revival of the ‘Quiet Treehouse’, originally developed in  partnership with John Lewis for the Ideal Home Show, coincides with Quiet Mark’s 5th anniversary. We’re celebrating all that we’ve achieved over the years, creating awareness of the value of quieter technology and noise-reduction solutions.

The distinctive purple Quiet Mark symbol, awarded to products following rigorous testing and approval by expert acousticians, provides consumers with a clear choice to ‘Buy-Quiet’ to collectively improve the aural environment. As we mark our fifth birthday, we’re thankful to have over 70 leading brand partners.

We’re also grateful of the support of the many UK brands who supplied noise-reduction materials to build the treehouse originally. These include Kebony Wood, Jewson, Pilkington Glass (Optiphon Glass), Kebony, Medite Tricoya, Acoustiblok, Cantifix, Kvadrat - Soft Cells, Rockwool, and Alternative Flooring.

We will raise a glass of champagne at our birthday party at Kew this Sunday to all those who have collaborated with us and helped us to achieve our goals. We look forward to many years ahead, continuing to work with fantastic brands, supporting quiet design and technology, and creating a peaceful soundscape for living.
