Mijn Speel Huis
(My Play House)

Sustainable architecture by children for children in Amsterdam

Ninety children together with architects designed their ideal playhouse. This project took place in Amsterdam. We designed and executed this project for our client Eigen Haard one of the largest housing corporations in the Netherlands.

The goal of the project was to involve children in the designing of a playground in their municipality. We created an architectural structure mini museum, where we showed them how they could use
(waste) materials to create different structures for their playhouse. This contributed to influence positively their perception about waste and garbage.

Mijn speelhuis (my play house) was simultaneously happening in 3 municipalities of Amsterdam New West. The ‘play house’ scale models were exhibited in each municipality.
