The Botanical Treehouse

The RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2024 Treehouse

the brief

Welcome to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2024!

We are delighted to once again be back on Main Avenue at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, with a beautiful 2-storey garden treehouse, created in collaboration with renowned leading landscape architecture, construction and maintenance company, Randle Siddeley Limited; and expertly decorated by the talented Lucinda Sanford. This year we wanted to create something a little more grown-up, designed with the garden at the forefront. The use of edible plants and fragrant botanicals will complement the treehouse bar and entertainment deck perfectly.

Set against the backdrop of the prestigious RHS Chelsea Flower Show, the Botanical Treehouse will stand tall amongst the silver birch trees and lush natural garden landscape. The focal point of the structure will be the magnificent entertainment tower, offering guests a space to relax and enjoy the view across Main Avenue, whilst sipping on a botanical cocktail (or mocktail if you prefer) from the adjacent outdoor gin bar.

Edible plants and fragrant botanicals abound

Another addition this year will be the whimsical downstairs kid’s hangout, complete with swinging seats and bright interior, which will sit snuggly underneath the entertainment tower, ensuring there will be plenty to feast your eyes on at the Botanical Treehouse on Main Avenue.

“We are thrilled to unveil the Botanical Treehouse at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show,” said Andy Payne, Founder and MD of Blue Forest. “This project represents a true collaboration between nature and design, and we are delighted to once again be working with the prestigious Randle Siddeley to create something truly spectacular.

The Botanical Treehouse promises to be a highlight of this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show, and we look forward to welcoming you to our stand.

Lucinda Sanford offers a full build, design, and project-management service. This ‘start to finish’ approach is what makes us unique.

We offer more than conventional project managers or interior designers, who provide a single service that requires clients to obtain help from different professional sources. By contrast, Lucinda Sanford is a one-stop shop, capable of overseeing a project from inception to completion. As the point of contact for clients from the start to end of a project, we aim to reduce the complexity of contracts and to streamline the entire process. We offer a full planning service, which includes submitting planning applications. Where additional specialists are required, we have technical advisors and specialists, with whom we work closely, to assist with any further demands from local boroughs. We also have engineers and surveyors who can help to evolve the plans into structural designs.

As a contractor and designer, Lucinda Sanford is committed to producing exceptional and dynamic projects. However, if clients wish to work with another contractor, we are happy to manage, liaise and coordinate with them.

We also welcome the opportunity to work as part of a wider team in cases where a client has a historic relationship with an architect or designer. In circumstances like these, the goal is to work together to produce the trademark level of detail that characterises all our projects.
All build work is complex.

Our level of management, combined with our practical approach and desire to produce beautiful interior design, mean we are well equipped to be the ‘master builder’ of projects both residential and commercial. Our knowledge of on-site building work, as well as the outstanding management and service we give our clients, makes us Master of Building homes and developments.
