Completed in 2013, the project at Jean Steckle Public School included the development of 4 different sites on a new campus. Through the development of the buildings, most of the open space had been designated to sports fields and hard courts. As a result, the design team was left with relatively odd and challenging parcels to work with. The result was a transformation of these drainage ditches and narrow spaces into beautiful, natural playgrounds - two early childhood spaces as well as the JK/SK program. Some of the highlights of this project include a fort weaved from full-grown living willow trees and a beautiful amphitheater. Additionally, this was our first project where we utilized acrylic art panels to divide age groups to meet licensing requirements while affording intergenerational artistic collaboration.
