Situated at the entrance of the Israel Museum’;s Youth Wing for Art Education, the IMJ Tree House provides a gathering point for both adult and children visitors.
“As a tribute to the childhood collective memory of a treehouse, we positioned a small roofed structure where children can hide and overlook at high up a tilted trunk raised above the meticulous surroundings of the museum,” said the architects.
A decked platform creates a seating area around the outside of the playground before ramping up to provide access to the treehouse. Children can also enter and exit the structure via a metal pole with foot pegs.
A hole in the treehouse floor accommodates the pine trunk, and provides another surface to clamber up.
At night, the treehouse is the only area of the playground to be illuminated.
