This space may be small but it is mighty! We built a custom cubby house, signage, decking, a timber bridge, hopping logs, a hand water pump and dry creek bed, a sand pit, mud kitchen, custom storage shelves, a custom slide which includes a climbing wall and chalk boards, a path to ride the bikes made from rubber soft fall, artificial turf, garden beds, edging, plants, mulch and even some raised vegie patches.

Coniston Primary School
Designed and constructed for the Occupational Therapy Department at Figtree Private Hospital. The previously unused courtyard was transformed and will now be used as a space to help patients with their rehabilitation.
The brief was to provide a space that could be used for functional assessments with steps, ramps, handrails, seating and different surfaces to walk on. We certainly met and exceeded the brief!

A crushed granite path meanders through this Place Space at Oak Flats Preschool. Starting from the yarning circle, past the custom made boat, over the timber bridge where you can watch the water from the hand water pump flow underneath you, down the dry creek bed. Continue walking and you will see the beautiful bright mud kitchen, large sand pit, balance beams and hopping logs. Wow, what a space, all surrounded by beautiful gardens and sandstone rocks to sit and ponder.
Oak Flats Preschool
The main aim for the children and educators at St Lukes preschool was to increase their yard space so the children would have a large area to run and play soccer. We removed the existing fences and extended the whole play space into a disused garden bed, that divided the preschool and the car park. This then gave us room to install a new bespoke cubby house and climbing frame amongst many other informal play areas and functional landscaping elements.
