Kids Pod

Kids Pod is a super sized cubby house. It is a pavilion extension to our Hill House project, intended for the current and future grandchildren of our clients. It is wrapped in a patterned timber skin evocative of a wooded landscape, its windows are protected by operable shutters, its interior is made from robust concrete and plywood. A strawberry red curtain divides the spaces, providing warmth, flexibility and theatricality. Kids Pod was completed in 2014.

The Kids Pod’s skin is a reinterpretation of the protective canopy of a treehouse. Timber boards run continuously across both walls and windows, CNC-routed into a pattern abstracted from our clients’ favourite Pinot Noir vines. Over the windows, customised steel shutters open like eyelids to permit light in and views out, then close again at night, the building glowing like a lantern | Kids Pod by Mihaly Slocombe (2014) | Merricks, Victoria, Australia | photo: Emma Cross

A retractable wall and theatre-inspired red curtain divides the rooms, permitting multiple configurations. They can be open and connected, or enclosed for privacy and rest. The interior is lined with plywood accentuated by matte black fittings and fixtures with polished concrete floors | Kids Pod by Mihaly Slocombe (2014) | Merricks, Victoria, Australia | photo: Emma Cross
