Willow play houses installed as final finishing touch on residential playscapeRead More
We had the pleasure this spring of working with a local artist, Jillian Banks-Kong (http://www.jillianbanks-kong.com), on the creation of a bronze sculpture of a bear for a residential garden and children's outdoor play space. The piece was created as part of a dry creek water play area that includes a water-pump, climbing rocks, and bridge. In a month or two willow playhouses will arrive to finish off the piece.
After much anticipation, the bear was finished and ready to be installed this week. He now rests happily in his new home among the ferns at the edge of his very own creek waiting for his next fish to arrive.
Construction on this multi-unit housing rehabilitation wrapped up several weeks ago and it was fun to see residents start to ‘move in’.
The new BBQ area was designed in collaboration with Anne Phillips Architecture and features permeable concrete in a lively pattern.
The predominantly California native planting palette complements the mature Valley Oaks that ground the site.
And that conifer tree shaped play element provides imaginative, open ended, and physically stimulating play for a broad range of ages!
We are excited to see the space mature and continue to develop new uses by the residents.
