Requirement

Duncan & Grove worked in collaboration with LDA Design to design and build this play space in Burgess Park, Southwark. The design aimed to introduce natural play as part of the wider play offer within the park, make a strong visual impact and inspire and excite children to play, explore and undertake physical activity.

Solution

The design consists of a mix of geometrical shaped structures and more natural free-flowing timber pieces. The geometrical play structures are based around a series of dodecahedrons that are linked with bridges, balance ropes, net tunnels, balance beams, stepping poles, slides, fireman’s poles, climbing walls, and climbing nets. The natural play elements are made from natural robinia poles and consist of swings and a long winding climbing net trail.
