Built from green oak with a stabilising stain, this domestic play area incorporates six separate play areas featuring six hundred metres squared of artificial grass, an engraved redwood frame, oak cladding and posts, and a cedar shingle roof. Not only is it striking in appearance, but it also offers a rope v-bridge, horizontal nets, poles and rope traverses, a rustic playhouse, a thirty metre aerial runway, cantilever swings, and traditional swings, as well as centrepiece that is a true miniature of the real house.
This installation was completed in 2014, during some of the worst weather that the UK has seen for a hundred years and will still be entertaining children for many years to come. The area is floodlit with white and coloured pulsar LED floodlights which are programmable, and the whole effect is quite enchanting, particularly as the playhouse design picks up the major features and character of the big house.
A Decorative Centrepiece
The centrepiece of the play area is a miniature replica of the main house, capturing many of its key elements. Spread across two levels, it connects to the other pieces of play apparatus with a rope V-bridge and can be entered or exited using doors, ladders, climb nets, and walkways. There is also a slide and a sand pit incorporated into the feature. All combined, this piece of play apparatus packs in a huge amount of play potential.
