Friday Find: Uroko House




This is just too cute. I would have loved this as a child! (Who am I kidding - I'd love this now!) This gorgeous kids bedroom structure is by a Japanese firm called Point Architects and it's called Uroko House. Such a fabulous idea! Imagine all the blankets you'd have available in the house because they weren't being used to create cubby-houses under tables etc! :) Felt shingles on the roof of an igloo-like structure with shelves for books and all kinds of toys and treasures... I am in love :) You can see the original concept at Point Architects here. There's also a Flickr set of someone's house renovation where they show the Uroko House being constructed. Many thanks to this lovely blog for leading me to it.
