As children’s nursery, the playful wood frame structure utilizes wood-frame structure with wall cavities and broad timber window frames.

“the [timber] structure simultaneously evokes a large, solid, cut block, a lodge set among trees, a musical instrument or a wooden toy. it plays on the relativity of scales of such interpretations and associations of ideas in an allusion to the playful world of children’s games”.
