Having a dream home is not reserved for adults only – a child should be also able to enjoy a modern interpretation of the private space, where imagination runs wild and the outdoors are one movement away. Take a look at the fabulous playhouse designed by Ultra Architects in the backyard of a family home located in Poznan, Poland. The 6 square meter Maja’s Wooden House was imagined starting from some wooden elevation boards left over from the construction of the house. Architects were asked to create a so-called tree house for Maja, the client’s child.
Unfortunately, none of the trees around would support the weight, so architects designed the playhouse on a mound left over from the construction of the house. Architects tried to “educate” their clients, explaining that a modern house would have a flat roof, but since Maja always draws houses with a chimney and gabled roof, her imagination was turned into reality. With an open “floor plan” and side walls that can be open to the outdoors, this special project displays chimneys used not only as decorations, but also for ventilation. Doesn’t this seem like the beginning of a beautiful childhood set of memories?
