Eva’s Bed by h2o Architectes

I wish I would have had something this cool to play/sleep in/on when I was little. "Paris firm h2o architectes have completed an elevated child’s bed that also forms a partition and play area in a Paris residence. "The structure includes shelves, steps, hidden compartments and passages for the children to play in and around. "Here’s some more information from h2o architectes: "The arrival of a new child in the family pressed a young couple to think about a way to divide a room into two parts. The idea was to provide a personal space to each child. The project answers to this request of separation by adding a third space making the partition. "The creation of a 'multiple-use furniture' in the middle of the space allows to add some depth to the primary basic partition. It afford passages, secret storage, bed, office… in a funny way. "The specific blend generates a concentrated typology of spaces and situations in perpetual renewal. The new partition is porous creating steps, cavities and niches which suggests many possibilities for appropriation (climbing, hidding, drawing, etc…). "Many uncharted and intermediate spaces led by the furniture allow for the invention of any kind of practices and uses. Let’s play!" -Dezeen

After seeing a different work/sleep/play station, also by h2o Architects (http://www.thisnext.com/item/F27316E9/A9CDE650/Eva-s-Bed-by-h2o-Architectes), I stumbled across this configuration that I like even better. I want an adult-sized version. "Arranged on four split levels, the 12m² building is intended for a teenager to live within the garden of the family home. "Here’s some information from the architects: "This little building, located in the owner’s backyard, was neglected for years. The aim of the project was to provide a private space for a teenager looking for his independence. Therefore, the program includes elements necessary for an autonomous life including sleeping, living, studying and washing. It had been decided between the parents and teenager that meals would still be a shared time in the family home." -Dezeen
