The Tiger Climbing Frame
Climbing frame project at Dog Kennel Hill School in South London.
The design was developed with a group of school pupils. Three meetings and a visit to a local adventure park were instrumental in fixing the brief for the project. The children all agreed that the climbing frame should be somewhere that all ages at the school could play together with different activities aimed at different age groups and devices to help interaction. They also were concerned that the area should have possible wheelchair access. The overriding concept behind the climbing frame however was that it should be possible to climb around the whole complex without having to touch the ground.
The central fort buildings are now surrounded by a forrest of tree trunks that can be climbed through on ropes and that add to the storytelling aspects of the area. Other features include sunken talking tubes for opening conversations with strangers.
The Tiger was installed in 2007
