Duplay is an innovative cubby-house whose design and form is experiential. An inviting simple box structure cleverly detailed inside and outside with choice sustainable, durable and practical materials. The fully resolved layout of the cubby-house still offers an experience encompassing imagination and real time. The interior colour scheme and soft edges to furniture feel comfortable and are practical for the function of this compact cubby. An inspired idea borne with a sense of consciousness, as its sale on completion benefited a charity, this is an invaluable resource for children to grow, learn and develop their social skills. The cubby-house is a winning design with a winning outcome.
