Shelters can play an important role in any play space. They can take the form of a built structure or can be as simple as a sail or piece of material tied to a tree.
Shelters can act as outdoor classrooms, places to carry out events and activities during wet weather or areas to get some shade from the sun during the summer months. Shelters allow play spaces to be used at all times and seasons of the year.
Shelters create a diverse and interesting learning environment for children away from the normality of the classroom indoors.
Shelters can also be used as summerhouses, places to relax and read as well as storage spaces. They can be created from a range of different materials and can be made to fit specific spaces depending on the size and shape of the area.
The style of the shelter can vary, they can be enclosed, have open sides or no sides at all. Shelters can create a new plane within the playground, acting as a ceiling as well as injecting some colour into the area.
The range of shelters Theories can build is infinite. Each one is different and will be created for the specific characteristics of the space and the needs of the customer.
