Playground Equipment – Kew Air Garden
Location: Kew Gardens, London
Client: Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew
Architect: Ground Control
The Air Garden is one of five zones of the new Children’s Garden at the Royal Botanical Gardens. Kew. It is part of the theme ‘What Do Plants Need to Grow’ and was designed in collaboration between Kew Gardens, Ground Control, and Duncan & Grove.
We installed several windmill flowers at different heights and of various colours. These were made of powder coated steel with sealed bearings attached to debarked, sapwood free and sanded smooth robinia poles. We installed a large nest swing and a couple of hammocks both made from robinia poles to keep with the natural aesthetic.
