Hippo's Spiral Deck  

Hippo’s Friends Child Care is the local childcare centre in our area. We were approached and asked to design a piece of play equipment to enliven the outdoor play area of the centre.

The Spiral Deck provides a play space around an existing tree. It is open and engaging for children who may determine its purpose as a bench, gangplank, sand kitchen or shop, balancing game, boundary, jumping platform or anything else enabled by their own imagination.

This project was designed and built by Dunn & Hillam Architects. It was a quick project that allowed our firm to give back and enliven the community we live and work in.
