Pasadena Play Structure

Pasadena Playhouse flows along the side of the yard and then angles to the back, all on a slight incline so that each section "steps up" the slope.  The large Double Playhouse anchors the front with the Hexagon Treefort in the middle and the Lookout Tower with sandbox below anchors the end. In between, two very long, fun bridge-over-swings. This large play structure is strategically placed to leave plenty of yard space.

Hillside Hamlet

Hillside Hamlet played a starring role in House Beautiful TV's episode entitled "Kids Live Here Too." One of Barbara's most ambitious projects, the Hillside Hamlet’s four Towers and four connecting Bridges nestle into an ivy-covered hill. The unusual black, white, and gray color scheme of this luxury play structure gives it serenity and complements the classic palette of the client's home and guest house.

Connecticut Castle

Barbara designed Connecticut Castle not only to please two boys but also to complement the beauty of the client's 1910 English-style stone castle/country home. Tucked in a circle of trees, this luxury play fort is built for the whole family to play on, kids and adults alike.

Napa Valley Twin Chalets

The Napa Valley Chalets were designed to provide "different but equal" Playhouses for 2 pre-teen siblings.  Each luxury Playhouse has a fully finished interior, glass doors and windows, electricity, built-in furniture and, best of all, great play features like the connecting Bridge-over-Swings.

Malibu Lighthouse

Malibu Lighthouse was built atop an existing stone guesthouse that overlooks the Pacific Ocean. This wooden play fort brings together images of lighthouse, sea waves, and driftwood. The Malibu Lighthouse is a delightful mixture of wrap-around decks, spiral ramps, porthole windows, hand-hewn boards, copper roof panels and artistically shaped railings.
