Barcelona-based designer David Lamolla of SmartPlayhouse creates children’s playhouses based on contemporary architecture styles, aiming to create fun spaces for children that are also sculptural elements for the garden. His Kyoto playhouse series is inspired by minimalist Japanese architecture, taking on a form reminiscent of Toyo Ito’s Mikimoto Ginza 2 building.
Each of the playhouses is equipped with covered windows, some of which open, as well as a door that opens outwards with finger protection at the hinges.
Each façade is made of only one piece of birch plywood, so the playhouses are easy to assemble. Additionally, the roofs are insulated and precast with a water drainage pipe, and a layer of gravel over the top.
Some of the playhouses are even two stories tall, with an internal staircase.
