Danish firm Monstrum, founded by Ole B. Nielsen and Christian Jensen, are responsible for some of the most brilliant playscapes I’ve ever seen. From life-size blue whales, giant serpents, and wobbly castles, any one of these would have been my dream come true as a child. See many more examples in their project gallery.

The facade is comprised of prefabricated textured concrete and large openings which offer a maximum of transparency.’ Link here.

I’ve was never brave enough to climb up a tree as a kid. Trees are awesome enough….from the ground. But the folks at the Soneva Kiri resort managed bySix Senses in Thailand seem to love living the high life as their guests can enjoy fine dining within the comforts of a tree. This five star hotel offers exquisitely decorated guestrooms, relaxing spa treatments and dining in their tree pods.
