Norfolk Street Child Care Centre


Project Specifics

Location: Yarraville

Consultancy Services: Schematic Design, Design Development, Contract Documentation, Contract Administration


The playspace design focuses on the provision of natural play elements in keeping with the centre’s philosophy of children’s play. Children are able to journey through the garden and explore secret paths and nooks amongst the dense vegetation. Distortion mirrors, archways with wind chimes and rocky trickle streams further add to stimulate and enhance perceptions of play. Rainwater tanks are fitted close to sandpits and digging patches. Thatched huts provide a place of retreat and a stage under a large Oak tree facilitates performances and role play activities. Different pavement types add texture and articulate play zones throughout. The redevelopment of the Children’s Garden as a whole provides an abundance of play opportunities. The playspace was completed in stages over a period of 6 years and is testament to the committee of management’s determination to create a special place for children.
