Our AIA - Orange County chapter, award winning project.

Ever wanted to build a container home? What about a container playhouse? Well this project is sure to inspire you to live out those dreams! Our client wanted to create a place up in the mountains that his grandkids could call their own. 

A secret, unidentified path leads you to this playhouse, nestled down in the trees on over an acre property. We designed the space to be kid friendly and as minimalist as possible. Inspired by the design of the 'adult' home on the same acre, we kept a very modern, open space with mid century modern pieces. 

The majority of the project was focused on sustainability, reusing and repurposing. The containers themselves were third-generation having been used previously for transport followed by use as an office. We were able to salvage some fun colored lighting and carpet tiles from a project that was discarding the pieces. Popped in a few accent colors, a wood burning stove to keep warm during the winters and of course, needed a projector to display just about any kid movie you can think of. 

Cozy, relaxing, fun, bright. The perfect mountain playhouse. Let me know what you think in the comments below!
