Butler Armsden - Urban Originality

The top floor of this historic San Francisco house was converted into a children's sleeping and play floor, for a couple with four young children. The architectural vocabulary is intended to embrace the idea of playfulness of youth, in contrast to the more formal nature of the lower floors. The cabinetwork is designed to be specific to the various storage functions behind, and the exposed ceiling allows light to enter the room high up giving the space the feeling of a contemporary kid's cabin. A built in desk with task lighting provides a homework area, while drawers and different kinds of cabinetwork doors, and shelves both hide and showcase the children's toys. The boy's bedroom has a Douglas fir picket fence motif wainscoting, as well as a loft above. The low voltage lighting has parachute, dirigible, and airplane fixtures specific to the interests of the inhabitants of the room. Bright colors are used in the bath materials, which include natural wood, mosaic tile, ceramic tile, and painted walls.

Many times you will want to create a child's office space that has desk room for two. This allows the child to work with a sibling, a school friend or even you.
