Fort Andren
The owners wished for a modern, multi-level, playful fort for their three young boys. Set on their beautiful wooded property, this wood fort captures the imagination of the children and encourages one to climb and explore it's various surfaces, passages, and spaces. Each of the three levels have their own unique character and are accessible through cleverly placed floor hatches and rope ladders or by climbing on the outside "ladder facades" and entering through one of the open ports. The design concept is modular meaning no wood members are cut down to size except for the various plywood wall panels. This approach minimizes material waste and makes for easier installation.
