Project by: Jenna Piccirillo of PICCISTUDIO
Location: Fairfield, Connecticut

This bedroom needed to house two growing pre-teen boys and provide space for them to sleep, study and hang out with friends. Jenna Piccirillo’s solution is the stuff kids’ dreams are made of and include a room-within-a-room treehouse.

Jenna tells us about the project:

The challenge of this project was to design a bedroom for two growing pre-teenage boys to share while considering their own individual needs for privacy. I created an environment that’s more than a just a bedroom…it very well could be a small estate. There is an indoor, multi-level tree house as their private quarters and a comfortable shared lounging area that is public and out in the open where the boys can comfortably entertain friends or just hang out.

This project is full of wit and whimsy…a boys’ wonderland. Taking cue from the individual interests of each of these incredibly smart boys, I used nature and science as inspiration…literally and metaphorically bringing the outdoors in.

My goal in creating any child’s space is to create a place that will inspire for a lifetime.
