Belleville Playground / BASE

Belleville Playground / BASE

In Paris, France, BASE has created an environment for the imagination with their latest playground design. Working with children and adults in different workshops, BASE was able to understand the users’ wishes and visions for the project. ”Our work then consisted in synthetising and interpreting the public’s expectations to provide a spatial response both truthful and original,” explained the designers.

More images and more about the playground after the break.

The main element is a large playhouse which can be designed in several versions,”a tree-dwelling, a troglodyte, forest, etc.”  The playground also features a climbing course with different inclinations for different levels and different age groups.

Depending upon your imagination, this “magical mountain” can included a large pirate ship, a flying carpet, or perhaps become a medieval fort.  Whichever you image, the playground is sure to provide a great setting for any child’s play.
