Heatherton Play Space
Design and Construction collaboration between Landarche and Landstruct; of a sculptural playspace for the City of Kingston. The site selected by Kingston was a closed capped tip site; making construction difficult and all based above existing grade. The playspaces was to have minimal “off the rack” play equipment and to sit within the landscape (not be and obvious, fenced playground)
The Landscape incorporated steel sculptural artwork elements along with mounding and natural spaces created with rocks, logs and gravel. Extensive earthworks (imported certified fill) concrete footings and coordination with engineers and steel fabricators. Also included slides, rubber surfacing, rocks logs, planting, hydromulching and maintenance.
