In 2009, Barcelona, Spain–based architect David Lamolla began designing playhouses modeled after the real-world buildings of Le Corbusier, Toyo Ito, Mies van der Rohe, and more. After his daughter was born, the architect was inspired to design his own playhouse by the homes his parents restored in Denmark.

Many of the designs include multiple stories and rooftop rock gardens. Lamolla leaves the design of interior up to the child, but the playhouses can be purchased with advanced features, like carpeting, designer curtains, and track lighting. The elevated, waterproof playhouses are as easy to assemble as Ikea furniture. The architect is most proud of the practicality of his designs, as pieces can also serve as backyard sculptures.
