Playground Shelter in Cardiff
Posted on 16/03/2017
Working closely with Rhiwbeina Primary School we installed two Maxima Tepees to an overall size of 4000mm x 4000mm.
Project – Maxima Tepee creates outdoor playground cover at Rhiwbeina Primary School
Product – Maxima Tepee
Requirement – Rain falls, you can’t very well stop it.
But you can account for it. By adding a smart, playful outdoor playground shelter you open up the opportunity for outdoor learning even when the weather is a little grim.
Rhiwbeina Primary School tucked away in a sweet little village outside of Cardiff, wanted to make sure their children had somewhere to duck and cover when the heavens opened.
But not just anywhere, somewhere that was well designed and added value to the playground with soft, playful lines that would contrast the buildings around it.
So they contacted A&S Landscape to install an attractive yet effective playground canopy that meant when the sky turned grey, they could just ‘let it rain’.
Solution – Working closely with Rhiwbeina Primary School we installed two Maxima Tepees to an overall size of 4000mm x 4000mm. Both shelters were covered in our trademark waterproof tensile fabric, meaning these playground canopies will look great whilst keeping you dry.
Result – The result is much the same. Rain will still fall.
But now it doesn’t need to stop play, with a robust and effective shelter that also creates a large area of shade in the hot summer months.
Find Out More – Just because a little cover from the rain is functional doesn’t mean it can’t be attractive too.
It’s important to not just add a canopy that does the job but something that leaves a little more behind too. The intangible quality of high spec design can soften the hard lines of the buildings around it and offer a more whimsical silhouette.
And that’s important because spaces can offer more than just function, they can excite, delight or bore us depending on how much care and attention has gone into their design.
