The Dartington Hall Trust were looking to create a play space on their 1200 acre estate. It had to be in line with their environmental ethos and socially inclusive. It also had to be movable if another location was preferred in the future.

We love getting kids involved in designing their own play spaces, so we held a model making workshop with the children at nearby Park school to find out what kind of play they wanted. Their ideas were translated into a design that incorporates a big tree as its centre piece. Two large climbing towers connect to a smaller tower via a web of traversing ropes. One tower has an exciting slide while another has a hangout tyre and these towers provide a route around an existing fallen tree via balance beams.
