Bennett House by brinca dada is an oasis in the sea of glitzy toy houses.
Heavily influenced by the De Stijl movement of the early 20th century, it emphasizes lines, squares and rectangles in asymmetrical patterns while minimizing color.
Fans of Rietveld’s Schröder House will recognize another influence. Architect and brinca dada Design Principal Tim Boyle explains how Bennett House breaks out of the townhouse genre: “Townhouses are typically a stack of floors with a few windows on each floor, and no inside/outside relationship. I prefer architecture that reveals structure and engineering, hence windows extend past floors to show the weight and thickness of the structure.”
Bennett House is more than just a pretty façade... its clever design and use of space invites play whether open or closed. The townhouse features a two-story living room, elevator, roof top pool and glass rail balconies in both the master bedroom and children’s bedroom. Solar-powered LED lights make for play by sun or moon.
Bennett House is made of CARB-certified woods and non-toxic, lead-free paints and stains, so it is easy on the environment.
Not just any doll would feel at home in the Emerson House. The Modern Family is sleek, minimalist, and striking; the dolls' beauty is only matched by their exquisite functionality. Not only are they posable and fully articulated, the dolls' biceps and calves flex realistically. The Modern Family turns playtime into an art.
