Door is an important aspect of any apartment and its design should influence and be influenced by all the other elements in the room. In addition to providing convenience for children, the existence of a playhouse can also be a means of education for them.
These design features of the playhouse will cultivate a variety of imaginary play for kids of all ages and a lifetime of fun memories to pull inspiration from in their future. But in general, the size of a playhouse is not too big, because it only serves as a kid’s toy. Usually a lot of exterior furniture offered by furniture stores is quite varied, depending on consumer demand. In order for children to feel interested in the design playhouse you buy, you can choose a playhouse with a combination of bright colors. All the playhouses that have been designed and built will be delivered July 30th and 31st so I am scrambling to get all my real work done so that I can also handle up on my playhouse responsibilities. Fantastic participation and dynamic designs all led to to really clever and exciting playhouses being built for the 17th annual Dallas CASA Parade of Playhouses event.The Dallas CASA Parade of Playhouses event officially starts this weekend and all the playhouses have to be completed and delivered on site for display by this Wednesday. I have designed quite a few playhouses the last several years but this year I decided to host a competition for others to submit their playhouse designs.
In that time period, I personally have been responsible for the design and documentation of 6 playhouses. I have included their original entry board above as reference so it would make it easier to see where the design started and how things have progressed during the construction. It benefits a great organization (Dallas CASA) and quite honestly, it makes me feel pretty good to use my particular skill set to benefit Dallas CASA and the kids they help who deserve to have something go right in their lives. This lantern playhouse when all was said and done cost $1,400 – pretty good considering the level of craft and quality of materials. Since my main criteria for all the playhouses I design is that they serve some function beyond their immediate purpose, most have some fluidity to the function they perform … at least all of them except the Dugout.
Make no mistake, this is a playhouse that was intended to be a miniature sized version of a real dugout. All of these playhouses have size limitations and it is surprisingly hard to get the proportions right with the overall width, length, and height you have to work with … and doing a dugout was rewarding in the way doing something hard frequently turns out to be. I was actually asked to design a Japanese themed playhouse for the the title underwriter of this charity event and they are a Japanese owned company.
One of the things I try and do on the playhouses I design is to try and make them as cost effective as possible.
When I first saw Peter’s playhouse, what really caught my eye was how much geometry he was able to work into the size parameters. This playhouse was unique because there was a Dallas family that donated a brand new Smart Car 2+2 to the event and we were asked to design a playhouse that would go along with the car. This is actually true for both playhouses but having designed as many of these playhouses as I have, I know how difficult it is to design a structure as recognizable as a lighthouse and still meet the size restrictions. This playhouse has the same height and width restrictions but was built as a double-length playhouse.
Despite the fact that I can’t show it to you, I wanted to point out they they built the very first one for me and have continued to build my playhouse every year since.
