Portable Playhouse Carved from Foam

Design News 12.28.12

You'd expect there would be no ordinary playhouse for the toddler of two architects. A couple in Beijing carved a playhouse into a giant cube of foam core. The inside is lit from a small skylight, and it took the pair two months to create the cave's nooks and crannies. Fitting a few small children or one thin adult, the cave is nearly soundproof, perfect for reading or napping.
