BONE Structure presents “Play is More” at Dreams Happen Event A fundraising event organised by Rebuilding Together Peninsula
PALO ALTO, California April 26th, 2017 – BONE Structure, Nomos Red and Millennium Builders, in collaboration with Pacific Union and Neolith by FM Distributing, are honored to presents the “Play is more” playhouse at Dreams Happen, a biennial fundraising event organised by Rebuilding Together Peninsula.
A LIFESIZE PLAYGROUND FOR HIGH-PERFORMANCE TECHNOLOGY
Designed by Nomos Red, the “Play is more” playhouse is built using the BONE Structure steel construction system, a technology that is defining the next generation of custom high-performance homes. Designed and built using an industrialized process inspired by the aerospace and automotive industries, BONE Structure homes offer unprecedented precision, architectural freedom and energy efficiency.
A GROWN-UP TECHNOLOGY THAT IS SERIOUS FUN
The BONE Structure construction system assembles together like a Meccano Erector® set, allowing designers and architects full creative expression when designing a home.
“PLAY IS MORE”
This Playhouse design is inspired by the words of two great architects. First, “Less is more”. Mies van der Rohe defended that architecture had more impact when removed of unnecessary ornament and when deployed with only purposeful elements of decoration. Elegance does not derive from abundance.
Second, “Take your pleasure seriously”. Charles and Ray Eames believed that we should take our hobbies more seriously, to the point of making them our lives’ purpose. They encouraged us to approach our craft through play and experimentation.
“Play is more” aims to become a place where architecture and design are experimented playfully by children and their parents. Function is achieved by simple colorful geometries and diverse spaces result from the articulation of its volumes and the true expression of its structure. “Play is more” is an invitation to serious, simple fun.
BUILDING GREEN TODAY, FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS
From playhouse to custom dream home, the BONE Structure construction system adapts with ease to architectural styles, various terrains and difficult to reach sites. An ideal integrator of green technologies, the BONE Structure thermal envelope enables you to build sustainably and efficiently, with future generations close to heart.
