Who better than an eight-year-old consultant to create a play area tailored to children’s actual preferences? That’s what architect Jean Verville said to himself when he set about designing a space for playing, reading and relaxing. So, in close collaboration with Arnaud, he set about creating, in a highly compact space, what looks like an oversized children’s game of foam blocks and white felt panels. The project, a reinterpretation of the living room fort made from sofa cushions, nicely defines the room’s activity area and includes a raised bed and storage nook. The structure was designed to fully stimulate a child’s imagination. The walls with their geometrically shaped openings slide on rails to create changing patterns and adjust the light. One of the jury’s favourites, this project was described as “an exceptional example of integrated furniture imbued with charm and whimsy.”
