It seems bizarre to us just how many playgrounds get built with little regard to visual aesthetics.
Art is a massive part of what we do and we hope it permeates everything from our choice of bricks
and blocks to the finial on top of the play tower.
We work with a huge range of media and
different techniques. We employ spray
stencilling, mould making and casting,
collage, ceramics and mosaics to take
our playgrounds to
a completely different level and give
our clients products
that definitely have that WOW factor.
We are happy to run projects with the children to
get them actively involved in the design process
to give them a sense of ownership over their new
playground. Many of the artworks shown
throughout this website were originated in
collaboration with students from the schools involved. Many others
were inspired by the local environment coupled with an
understanding of a school’s ethos and guiding principles.
We can make a fence interesting, a wall stimulating, and the
ground beneath your feet vibrant and attractive. If you’re
looking for a way to refresh your existing play areas then an
Outer Space Playgrounds Art Project with the children could be
the way to generate a unique new look...
