Calthorpe Under 5s space

Variant office was commissioned to develop a play strategy for Calthorpe Community Gardens under 5 space. Whilst the space available is reasonable it suffers from a lack of master planning resulting ad-hoc additions and under-used areas within the site.
We proposed a strategy that maximised the free space by developing a series of interventions around the perimeter of the site, enlarging the canopy to improve the play offer in inclement weather and moving the ramp to minimise space lost to circulation.
