Chobham Farm is a residential development in Stratford, London
The concept for this piece of bespoke playground equipment was designed by Churchman Thornhill Finch architects. Duncan & Grove were appointed as the specialist design and build playground contractors. We created a detailed 3D model of the structure, appointed a structural engineer and liaised with the play inspector to ensure it was complaint.
A central steel column with a series of spokes supports a number of curved glulam beams, a stainless steel tube slide and a series of nets and climbing ropes. The glulam beams are supported on steel shoes to lift them out of ground contact and improve the longevity of the playground equipment. The cladding and climbing holds are made from robinia.
