This is a seriously cool play house !
Created by Robert Potokar and Janez Brežnik in 2008.
The freestanding, self-supporting house-by-a-tree is a playhouse designed with contemporary design principles, deviating from precedents that model real houses or garden sheds. Instead, the design was guided by the goal of creating interesting and different spatial experiences for children that inspire new forms of play.
Although, it does appear to be a tree-house, it actually requires no support from nearby trees at all.
The house features a glass wall that makes the house visually accessible. The furnishings are minimal and simply constructed from dowel pins that allowed children to participate in the making of their playhouse.
