  • Playhouse

    Shed: Playhouse

    Location: Finland

    Architects Anna and Eugeni Bach built this extraordinary playhouse after their three young children complained that their parents had never built anything for them. To create the ultimate kids playspace Anna and Eugeni designed a playhouse with a difference, with kiosk style windows and wide doors which open up on their garden; a blank canvas for their children's imaginations to run wild - to their son it's a castle and for their daughter, a flower shop.
