Based on our Twisting Frame sculpture, the Twisted youth or teen shelter is one of a range of robust public space structures we offer. As with everything we do its made using local, home grown timber, with a combination of traditional timber to timber joints and steel connections. Framing views and conversations while making those who sit in it feel special and valued, but also safe and open under the watchful eye of the community. With a wildflower meadow on top we are including the bugs, bees and birds within this watchful community.
