Your mission is to wow us with renderings of fantastical funhouses for the mini design enthusiasts in the making. We’re on the hunt for the kind of structures sure to slow passersby, and be the envy of fun-loving kids and sophisticated parents alike. Whether you’re inspired by Bauhaus or Versailles, we want you to go wild and channel your inner child.”

Playhaus Design Competition, organized by Dwell and James Hardie, challenges designers to create a children’s .

However the designer’s mission is to think beyond the typical playhouse prototype – dollhouses, pirate ships – and develop a structure that is daring, decadent and chic.

The design should turn the heads of slow passersby, and be the envy of fun-loving kids and sophisticated parents alike.

Contest : Design an innovative playhouse that incorporates James Hardie materials and products. See jameshardie.com/homeowner/products. The winning designs will be constructed by James Hardie and auctioned for charity.

The grand prize is $10,000!
