Very Small Architecture

Exquisite craftsmanship is evident in this lovely playhouse designed by Japanese architect, Kazuya Morita. Fiber-reinforced concrete was applied to a mold in an extremely thin layer, mirroring the exact proportions of a hen's eggshell. Though it is eggshell thin, this concrete structure is strong enough for an adult to stand on. The resulting space is intimate and peaceful, an ideal escape for big and little people alike.
