1. House by Pinnacle Mountain

Herron Horton Architects converted the preexisting garage of House by Pinnacle Mountain into a place for kids to study and play.

Architect: Herron Horton Architects, Location: Little Rock, Arkansas

From the architects: "An existing house on beautiful land near Pinnacle Mountain was transformed for a family of 10. The homeowners wanted a light and bright space with an open concept that allowed the family to be in separate rooms but still feel connected."

2. Woodside Residence

Custom-designed storage and entertainment fixtures create family gathering spaces in the Wooodside Residence.

Knoll Risom Child's Amoeba Table
A KnollStudio classic, Jens Risom's Amoeba Table is at once amorphous and crisply defined. The silhouette is certainly one of the defining styles of mid-century design.
Qeeboo Rabbit Chair Baby
The “Rabbit Chair” is the last creation that came out from Stefano Giovannoni’s magic hat, that becomes a family of products with a strong communicative media power.  The idea of the rabbit comes from the connection between its silhouette and the silhouette of a chair, where the rabbit’s ears...
Knoll Kids Risom Side Chair
This KnollStudio Classic was one of the first designs commissioned by Knoll. The knoll kids versions of these classic chairs are durable and kid-friendly with sunny colors in the woven webbed seating and an easy-to-clean lacquered wooden surface. The nylon/cotton strapping is even water repellent.

General Contractor: EBHCI, Location: Woodside, California

From the photographer: "Located next to the office, the kids' playroom offers plenty of toy and book storage."

3. The House by the Dunes

Neuman Hayner designed The House by the Dunes for a family of five who all enjoy surfing the beaches of Israel. The architects took a minimalist approach to designing each room, keeping colors and materials simple yet functional.

Architect: Neuman Hayner, Location: Hadera, Israel

From the architect: "Every centimeter is used efficiently. Multifunctional pieces can be found throughout the home—such as a staircase that contains a bookcase that doubles as a balustrade."

4. Dallas Apartment

Tom Kundig designed custom pieces of furniture to define each space throughout the apartment—such as these bespoke bunk beds in the children's room that are both playful and creative.

Architect: Olson Kundig, Location: Dallas, Texas

From the architect: "In this apartment, the expansive windows created an ideal situation where we could balance prospect and refuge."

5. North West London House

The area at the front of North West London House—which was updated by VORBILD Architecture—became the main living room, whereas the part towards the back is now a children’s play room.

Architect: VORBILD Architecture, Location: London, England

From the architect: "The brief called for a complement refurbishment—including the external facade, the garden, and an increase of the living space. This has been maximized by adding an extension on the side, plus, at the top level, a new staircase was built and the loft converted."
