MINI ZIMI BEACH BUNGALOW CUBBY
It is not often you get to team up with a fashion label and design a whole new cubby style. I recently met Zoe Paul from Australian label Mister Zimi and we had an instant connection – she is an absolutely legend! Our talk turned to kids, fashion and cubbies and we immediately agreed to set about designing a cubby house for her family and for our clients that was uniquely Mister Zimi. Aside from being the powerhouse behind the vibrant designs and colourful palette that Mister Zimi use in all of their lines, Zoe is also a mad keen interior home stylist and designer. In their home in the heart of Byron Bay it didn’t take us long to find the inspiration for this cubby house, it is modelled on their existing bungalow a 1 bedroom haven positioned directly opposite the main home.
The flat roof design with overhanging eaves showcases style features of the framed awning with a black and white stripe awning fabric and the upright posts which are a direct model of the bungalow design. A large front opening with bi-fold window shutters creates the space in which the kids interact with each other and mum and dad, and the door is of course one of our favourites the barn door which features a big Z for Zimi as the bracing.
The cladding is pine painted in white. We painted the inside of the cubby also to make it light and bright and adding in one clear roof panel defintiely ensured this. For this cubby Zoe we had spotted gum timber deck built slightly off the ground to match the existing decking around the house and Zoe wanted this untreated and to ‘grey off’ to match. We have installed this custom size cubby (larger than the sizes listed below at 2.8 x 1.8 m cubby directly onto the existing decking which means the decking and internal floor are seamless.
Our Mini Zimi Cubby House is a premium cubby house. Inspired by the architectural home of Zoe Paul of Australian fashion label Mister Zimi, the flat roof style with framed awning and fun new features would suit any space.
