HDR | CEI enters ‘Mt. Venture’ in the PlayHouzz 2016 Competition

A team of clever staff here at HDR | CEI have designed an entry for Houzz’s PlayHouzz competition. The competition, held by Houzz and the American Institute of Architects, is a charitable playhouse design contest and showcase. This year’s theme is “Adventure”, and they’re looking for innovative playhouse design entries that inspire a sense of imaginative play.

In response, Jorge, Will and Riley have designed Mt. Venture. Here is how they describe the inspiration that led to their creative design:

Conquering nature’s greatest peaks is one of life’s greatest adventures. Mt. Venture invites children to experience the thrill of climbing a mountain, encouraging them to play and explore. Once they reach the top, the little mountaineers will be rewarded with a stunning view and a fun ride down a spiral tube slide.

There are a few ways to conquer Mt. Venture: Mountain Climbing, Cave Exploring, and Rope Climbing. Each path offers a unique challenge that develops motor skills while fostering imaginations. The cave under the mountain provides a gathering space to rest and share stories and a small garden serves as an interactive connection to nature. 

Go see it for yourself! You can view the full entry here in the PlayHouzz Showcase. Be sure to give it a ‘Like’ to vote. Voting is open until 5 p.m. PST on Thursday, April 21.

Good luck, team!
