Project Description

STOCKLAND LAKE WENDOUREE

 Wendouree, VIC | Play & Recreation

ABOUT THE PROJECT – IN PROGRESS

OUTHOUSE design has been engaged by Stockland because they believe we look at play in a different way. We feel that each design should have a common thread and that creating a number of different playground designs that represent and connect with the local community is key. It should ignite the imagination, rather than just provide the traditional plastic playground.

We believe that incorporating the new guidelines ‘Everyone Can Play’ and ensuring that all designs are inclusive and follow the 7 Senses principles is vital. For Stockland each play experience should represent a place or historical point in time that the community hold dear. So, with that in mind this interactive space seeks to celebrate and intertwine the rich history found in and around Lake Wendouree.

With a focus on water activities, offering both an educational, play and sensory experience we feature timber sailing boats with interactive play panels, crawl throughs and even an underwater resin glimpse into the sea life. Children discover the lake by balancing over the timber oars, or climbing on the skeletal boat frame, not forgetting the secret porthole tunnel!
