Articles Grimshaw enters the Kids Under Cover 'Cubby House Challenge'

Grimshaw has designed its first cubby house which will be auctioned at a VIP event at the 2017 Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show on Thursday, 30th March as part of this year’s Cubby House Challenge.

Funds raised will go towards Kids Under Cover’s Studio Program, an early intervention strategy which helps to prevent youth homelessness. In support of this, Grimshaw has designed a bespoke shelter which encourages creative play and a sense of ownership while offering a finely detailed installation fit for the most urbane of backyards.

Grimshaw Associate, Matt Hutton said, “Through MySpace we have reconceptualised the traditional cubby, transforming the rigid building form into one that allows children to create their own space by manipulating various sized blocks across four levels. How they enter the cubby and arrange the interior is up to them – it is a non-static space that children can make their own and reinvent as they desire.”
