HAO Design : Le Casse-Noisette

In Kaohsiung (Taiwan), the architects of the agency HAO Design imagined a room full of mischief for two equally malicious girls. In addition to sleeping, this kingdom which toddlers access through a small hidden door is home to a multitude of nooks conducive to the game: a real Wonderland ...

In Taiwan, in the municipality of Kaohsiung, the architects of the agency HAO Design deliver in 2018 the complete renovation of an apartment for a couple and his two daughters. A major operation during which the property lost a room but gained in optimization. Among the strong points of the proposal of the architects: the children's room, case study of intelligent and playful treatment of the domestic space.

Installed in the middle of the apartment, between the parents' bedroom and the living room open on kitchen, this small square room is accessible by a tiny pink sheet metal door - which is not unlike that of a container - integrated into the shelves. from the library of the stay. "Evoking Alice's door after drinking the potion"As the designers would like to remind us, this layout is mainly of a recreational nature, since there is a second passage, more conventional. Thus, a glass partition equipped with an opening gives on the corridor and allows parents to monitor the owners of the place and to enter without having to get down on all fours! A precaution also useful for when the two girls will have grown up.


Inside, a whole world of games and entertainment is made available to the occupants thanks to the layout imagined by the HAO Design team. Above the two beds positioned facing each other is indeed a small hut, as "A fortress", in the words of the architects. Accessed by a ladder, it even has a slide to escape quickly in case of attack the ugly Queen of hearts and his henchmen!
