The Quiet Mark Treehouse was designed as a creative showcase to highlight the possibilities of quiet living using current design techniques, building materials, technology, appliances and interiors.
Quiet Mark created the concept as part of a pioneering partnership with John Lewis, and the Treehouse was the central feature at 2014’s Ideal Home Show and RHS Hampton Court Flower Show.
Many thousands of visitors explored the Treehouse, which was
nestled in a peaceful oasis of naturalistic forest planting and sculptured
landscaping, offering a special quiet escape from the noise of our busy world.
Those that saw the Treehouse also had the opportunity to learn how to encourage wildlife in their own garden whilst discovering the secrets to a peaceful, harmonious home.
“True silence is the rest of the mind; it is the spirit of what sleep is to the body, nourishment and refreshment.”William Penn
“Everybody has their taste in noises as well as other matters; and sounds are quite innoxious, or most distressing, by their sort rather than their quantity.”Jane Austen
“We must hear the acoustic environment as a musical composition and own responsibility for that composition.”R Murray Schafer
“Sound is a great undiscovered country for business. Most organisations are blissfully unaware of their sound, and yet sound affects people deeply. Sound can change people’s behaviour in almost any commercial environment.”Julian Treasure, The Sound Agency
