Jupiter Play sourced and supplied a range of timber play equipment for an adventure play area at Kilburn Grange, one of the larger parks in Camden.
Made from reclaimed materials, the play area offered some good play opportunities but had became difficult to manage and fund.
Camden Council was keen to continue to provide a play opportunity, but it needed to conform to the EN1176 playground standards while still offering the aesthetic and risk benefit that an adventure playground typically brings.
Erect Architecture, the lead design on this project, developed a concept heavily weighted around the arboretum, seasonality and trees theme and looked for suppliers who could create a unique bespoke structure that reflected this.
In addition the site location offered very little space and required careful planning around trees with TPO’s and root protection areas.
Jupiter Play’s process for Kilburn Grange began with a concept sketch idea, to developing a layout with Erect Architecture that would minimise impact on trees and vegetation, to continued consultation and liaison with Jupiter's supply chain. The final result is a high-quality play space that offers an incredibly unique play experience and aesthetic unique to the borough.
A partnership such as this is hugely valuable in high-end project developments because it brings together so much experience and expertise in the field of landscape architecture, bespoke structural design, play value and standards, as well as the vital ongoing after-care support once a structure is in place.
