King's Ely Acremont Nursery

School Playground, Ely

The Brief

To design and build a play area for Kings Ely Acremont and Nursery. 

The Design

We went on a design journey with the school, where we learned about their vision of a quirky, magical play structure for their children to enjoy imaginative and sensory play.

The Result

We are so happy with the finished structure, we built it above and around a dead standing walnut tree, letting one of the branches come through the roof, allowing Tim to carve it in to a chimney! The sweet chestnut we used to build the structure came from our local coppice in Essex and the willow used for the woven walls came from a coppice in Cambridgeshire.

After observing how the children play on this structure, it is clear that it will be very well used and appreciated for many years to come. A thoroughly enjoyable project from start to finish.
