Architects Ifat Finkelman of Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, Jerusalem, and Deborah Warschawski have created an illuminated wooden-slatted tree house as part of a courtyard renewal project at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem.

With lighting by Hila Mayer of RTLD Lighting Design, the roofed tree house is lit up at night.

Sited at the entrance courtyard of The Youth Wing for Art Education, the structure uses a large pine tree as the central focus and is made of a series of wooden boards attached to a light steel skeleton set around the tree.

Giving the effect of hovering above the entrance to the museum, the 150m sq structure, which has a soft rubber surface, gives visiting children a place to play in the main gathering area.

The architects say the pine tree is the focus of the project, the physical anchor of the design concept, set against the modern concrete and stone architectural surroundings of the museum.

Ifat Finkelman said: “As a tribute to the childhood collective memory of a tree house, a small roofed structure where children can hide and over look at, is positioned high up the tilted trunk, raised above the meticulous surroundings of the museum.”
