Our design for the refurbishment of an intimate community childcare centre playground resulted from very close collaboration with the centre management staff, parents and Council. This combined with a strong understanding and background in early childhood based design has led to an intricate, beautiful and much loved garden full of adventure. Water, sand, trees, different foliage textures, a cubby house and a performance stage are some of the elements that combine to form the garden. 3D modelling was used as an effective communication tool for the predominantly “non plan literate” stakeholders.
