Rainbow net tower

This project was initiated with a two-day landscape and structure design workshop working actively with the children from the adventure playground. We discovered through the course of the workshops the childrens' need on this site for fire and den making, which we incorporated into the design workshops.

Analysis of workshop outcomes and the translation of the unique models lead to the creation of a 6 meter high, multi-level hand-painted net tower, with 25-meter zip line and a long slide exiting into a beach sandpit with cobbled river for mastery play.

This project involved the careful evolution of the childrens' ideas, whilst extending the variety of play types available to them. Bespoke play theory and practical training was included for all staff.
