Mabbott Seidel Architecture. New York City, NY. “Instead of providing separate bedrooms for two young children, MSa designed a single large room bisected by a sliding wall of Douglas fir. Overhead glass transoms provide light and air. The light fixtures are Dioscuri by Artemide. Flor tiles cover the playroom floor and the bookcases are custom built.”
Openstudio Architects. London, England. “The children’s bedroom is on two levels: the beds and study areas are tucked up into the roof space, while the lower floor is opened out to form a large play area. The playful rubber floor has colours from a favourite story book integrated into the layout.”
Border Oak. Leominster, Herefordshire, England. “Mixing vintage pieces with handmade items gives this newly built childs room as sense of artisanship. The vaulted ceiling provides height and pretty painted windows flood the room with light.”
Wettling Architects. New York City, NY. “Natural materials and soft colors harmonize with the natural surroundings of this beachfront property. The house opens toward the water, providing spectacular views from almost every room. Tasked to accommodate an active young family and frequent guests, spaces were designed to be comfortable, relaxing, welcoming, and beach friendly.”
