Urban Play has created an interactive treehouse that encourages children’s imaginations to run wild as they explore the forbidden forest in their latest signature custom statement playground.
Urban Play has been privileged to collaborate with Stockland and their Landscape Architect, Place Design, to create yet another signature custom statement playground for Aura Estate on the Sunshine Coast.
In the ever-competitive world of residential development, Stockland has been strategic by incorporating playgrounds into their sales centres with an accompanying coffee shop. Working closely with Urban Play to make these playgrounds worthy of destination playground calibre, they attract families far and wide, highlighting the desired lifestyle of the new estate.
The Aura Treehouse was a collaborative effort, beginning from the initial landscape architectural sketches, the design was then polished and perfected by the KOMPAN Design Studio (KDS). After the final details were added to the design, Aura Treehouse was constructed by Urban Play, with Eureka Landscapes handling the landscaping elements of the project.
A testament to successful and creative collaboration, this is the largest scale tower and cabin combination that KDS have designed and Urban Play have delivered. The finished playspace demonstrates the achievement of a design vision that sought to create a forbidden forest, somewhere for children to climb, hide, discover and imagine.
Drawing inspiration from the dense natural forest reserve and its resident active bird life, the colourful treehouse will elevate the children to be in and among the canopies with the flora and fauna. This provides an opportunity to spot the birds from their own branches offering a unique perspective and sensory experience to what the forest reserve has to offer. It also encourages and promotes imaginative play, being one with nature.
The play structure stands 11.5m above ground with an oversized cabin nestled amongst the branches, with two massive stainless-steel slides extending from the tree. With multiple entry points, a number of different internal climbing routes and rubber resting ledges, it’s more than just aesthetically stunning; it has enormous play value, keeping the kids active and stimulated time and time again.
