Studio North Creates A Platform To Play
“Your environment can shape the way you think,” say the designers of Canadian Studio North, who have created the ‘Dreaming Platform.’
“Spaces can engage your imagination, broaden your mind and excite your spirit.”
The project, made as a collaborative weekend project at the family cottage, is a spot created for various activities. “Whether you’re a child or an adult, spaces can engage your imagination, broaden your mind and excite your spirit,” say the designers. Having said that, the ‘Dreaming Platform’ may be an ideal place for star gazing on summer nights or can serve as a diving platform. Constructed of salvaged materials from under the deck, supplemented from the local store, the platform owns its basic form to the availability of materials and tools. The structure, stripped down to the essential form, supports its two elementary functions – sleeping and playing. It also features a simple waxed canvas to cover the hut when the weather gets grey.
