A J.RUITER Original for Charity

A-Playhouse is purity of form, and a nod to small architecture and the big sense of wonder it can create.

“The A-frame has always been interesting to me because of its simplicity, bold stance and form. I grew up seeing these forms peeking through the trees on the shore of Lake Michigan. They give off a magical vibe deep in my memory.”

This playhouse is constructed by formed and welded aluminum, powder-coated, and lined with cedar slats. The mini loft is accessible with a built-in ladder, and the front porch creates an entry stage for imagination.

In collaboration with Berghuis Construction.

Available in private collection soon.
