Barker College Kurrajong Prep School

We designed the new Kurrajong Prep School playspace for junior pupils aged 5 to 8 as part of the grand masterplan at Barker College. We worked closely with the staff and architects on the outdoor play areas and truly enjoyed the process. Our brief was to create a unique playspace “with a lasting magic in its legacy”. Children enjoy climbing the ladders and sitting snugly in “walking clouds” or playing in tiny playhouses designed just to fit the little ones. There is also a large cubby house with slide, climbing wall and firepole, “Aussie cubby’, even a chook pen, all custom designed. Water play winds through gardens leading into a tunnel and challenging rock climbing activities. The only issue is – children do not want to leave.
