Children lucky enough to have their own playhouse traditionally have had to make do with the run-of-the-mill, Hansel-and-Gretel style, gingerbread design. Well, who’s to say our children aren’t wholly contemporary and drawn to modern architecture?  This playhouse — designed by Bloomfield Hills-based AZD Associates Architects — incorporates a curved metal roof, nap/loft area, electric heat, built-in TV/DVD, “creativity” station, and a thoroughly modern silhouette. With amenities like that, it won’t be long before their parents move in.
