Playspace

Not much space (16m2). Very little money. Brillant solution. A dedicated children's play room which sits next to a cafe in a shopping centre.

Great inspiration for a domestic playroom. Playspace by Clare Cousins Architects.

The Melbourne-based studio's additions address the iconic shape, extrapolating Boyd's exploration of geometry with circles and tangents. The new glances the old, meets, embraces, pulls away all the time celebrating the interplay of house and landscape.
