Works Commence for the Treehouse at Another Place
We are delighted to announce that construction has commenced onsite for the new Treehouse accommodation at Another Place, The Lake. This accommodation comes as part of the hotel’s launch of Outside, where HPA are assisting with a new collection of rooms and spaces bringing guests closer to the wild outdoors.
The Design Process
Situated along Ullswater Lake shoreline boasting 18 acres of land within the Lake District National Park, the visual impact that the Treehouse could have on the existing natural environment was a key component to HPA’s design process. As a result, the new Treehouse has been sensitively designed to fit alongside the surrounding environment, discreetly tucked into the oak, ask and yew treeline.
Working with Nature
The careful positioning of the Treehouse means guests can take advantage of the stunning Lake view, whilst providing an immersive nature retreat. Importantly, the structure is concrete free and will be built using an eco scew pile system for its foundations. This will ensure that the mature trees surrounding the Treehouse will not be damaged.
In addition to preserving the surrounding trees, British timber frame will be used to create the Treehouse, with a Shou-Sugi-Ban timber cladding. The sculptural form of the Treehouse is to follow suit to the new Lake District vernacular, whilst respecting its historical setting.
The Treehouse is comprised of three sections: two double bedrooms and a bathroom, with floor to ceiling glass windows designed to connect guests to the beautiful outdoor views.
HPA have been working with Another Place since its purchase of the hotel back in 2016, including extension work to expand the hotel bedrooms and upgrading their spa facilities. Having worked closely with the Outside project from its initial concept stages, we are looking forward to seeing the Treehouse come to life.
