dRMM is delighted to be participating in a fundraising challenge set by developer Cathedral Group PLC to design and build an accessible dolls’ house.
The project will support KIDS – a UK charity that helps disabled children, young people and their families.
According to Cathedral Group PLC creative director Martyn Evans, the project is inspired by Edwin Lutyens’ 1924 dolls house for Queen Mary (pictured above) which was the centerpiece of The British Empire Exhibition at Wembley in 1924 and 1925.
Similarly, the contemporary version will take the language of the traditional children’s toy and use it to display the very best of modern British architecture, craftsmanship and interior design. Twenty contemporary designers have been asked to design a dolls’ house for the 21st Century. Each house will be designed to include at least one feature which aims to make life easier for a child with a disability.
