This year’s Project Playhouse [1] brought forth a bevy of whimsical designs that got us wishing we were 4-feet tall again, but it was the design submitted by the folks at LPA Inc. [2] and Turner Construction [3] that really blew our socks off! More than just a space for kids to sit around and sip air-tea, the Ocean Adventure Lab [4]is an incredible playhouse designed to mimic a real oceanographer’s lab. Equipped with lab coats, a working wave tank, microscope, books, a working projector featuring sea creatures and a Play Station 2 (all for learning, of course), this incredible little space is also net zero and was even awarded an honorary certification by the USGBC Orange County chapter. Read ahead for all the green details on this awesome playhouse, which will soon be auctioned off [5] for charity on September 10th in Orange County!
