Swinging Through Luxury
By Hannah Fakhrzadeh
San Francisco builder Barbara Butler hand-designs and crafts elaborate play structures for children combining childhood fantasies with architectural know-how. Her client list includes Gwen Stefani, Will Ferrell, Robert Redford, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith, Kevin Kline and Phoebe Cates, and Walt Disney Productions. The structures range from small, cozy cabins to big tree houses to large play forts complete with monkey bars, rope swings, bridges and anything the imagination can conjure.
