Filton Children’s Centre

The purpose of this design was to create a playful space that could be enjoyed year round on wet or dry days and require minimal maintenance. A palette of natural materials has been chosen to create a natural play space for preschool children and babies. The astroturf surface on a slope is a soft and warm surface for sitting or rolling down the slope. Boulders and robinia logs create informal seating, balance beams and stepping stones. There is a pair of sound tubes for encouraging social communication and the planting ahas been selected to be low maintenance, durable and sensory.
