Dutch Architects, MVRDV are pretty good at what they do. Very good, in fact. This is a project of theirs, completed a couple of years ago now, called the Didden Village. Located in Rotterdam, the structure is rooftop extension to an existing building below. The idea is that each of the little “houses” are bedrooms – one for the parents and one each for the two kids. The way these houses are placed on the roof creates a series of miniature outdoor spaces, streets and avenues – creating a tiny sleeping village on the roof of their house. Great stuff.

Outside is all done out in bright blue poly-urethane finish and inside is simple and clean, with bloody lovely staircases and nice little playful touches.
