Australian Institute of Landscape Designers and Managers
2018 – National Gold Award Commercial, Educational/Institutional/Playspace
The New Enchanted Forest playground designed by OUTHOUSE design offers a unique and fun experience for the children and families that visit the Green hills shopping centre. Positioned in the heart of this showcase precinct, this unique play space concept came with the many challenges of being located in a small restricted space and dominating brick column.
OUTHOUSE design saw this an exciting opportunity to create what would be the key feature of this space – The giant Enchanted fig tree! Inspired by East Maitland’s Historical Flora and Fauna, the Enchanted Forest tells a story and offers children an opportunity to explore their local surrounding environment, and educate them through discovery and fun challenges.
