Text description provided by the architects. As part of an extensive landform to house a variety of play experiences, Tonkin Zulaikha Greer designed a kiosk as part of a greater playground designed by JMD Design.

Nestled into dramatic cuts in the landform are tunnel slides, embankment slides, a climbing net, flying fox, sand pit, and a waterplay disc that houses 170 jets. A 12 metre high treehouse overlooks the entire playground and gives broad views along the Parramatta River.

The form of the kiosk takes its queue from the sculptured JMD landscape, with a playful curving steel and tension fabric ‘petal’ roof to provide shelter from the sun and rain, soaring over a timber batten clad, vandal resistant box at its centre.

Conceived of as a place of rest and recharge, the Kiosk provides refreshments and a quieter zone adjacent to the energetic play area. Winding concrete plinths connect the Kiosk to the playground, reflecting the geometry of the landscape, and affording seating for larger groups and families alike. The Kiosk provides a shaded ‘retreat zone’ during the summer months and all weather protection during the rest of the year.
