Camphill case study

The project was developed to provide the residents of Camphill, who are young adults that require additional support and learning needs, outdoor play equipment to help them to gain confidence and experience of different forms of spacial awareness.

The objective was to design twin tree decks in a sympathetic manner with the local historic building and surroundings, including several special trees with preservation orders.

As the project scope evolved, additional elements were added to the design to provide a wide range of activities for the young adults.
