Taylor Brammer were engaged to develop an outdoor learning space for children from the Concept Design Stage through to the Detailed Design Stage at the University of Wollongong. 

Water is the key element to the space and the design includes raised water play elements that link into a more natural creek system. A meandering pathway links key elements such as musical instruments, the Quarry, the Beach, Vegetable Gardens and a tiled outdoor courtyard. Informal seating opportunities, turf mounds and bridge crossings over the creek give children the chance to play in a natural way.
