A sustainable tree is for life, not just for Christmas.
That is the message from Igloo Regeneration Partnership, the firm behind developments in Holbeck Urban Village (HUV), which has enlisted architect Tony Broomhead to design a year-round Christmas tree.
Mr Broomhead created a ‘tree for life’ installation and held a workshop with seven graphic design students from Leeds College of Art on the concept, which led to the creation of a series of flatpack sculptures inspired by the idea.
The main nine foot tall wooden Christmas tree now takes pride of place in the foyer of Igloo’s Marshall’s Mill development in HUV.
Steve Hunter, of Marshall’s Mill, said: “We hope the tree will be a focal point in the foyer for a long time to come.”
