Bird Boxed

Fujimori Inspired Parkour Playground
MFS designed and built this Fujimori-inspired bird box landscape and managed the planning application process. The structures in this thriving, diverse school provided challenge and height for hundreds of children. The main structures have 2.3m high platforms, fire pole, scramble nets, tunnel, and gable-roofed, house-shaped parkour ramps, and bars that children can climb and hang from.
The design also incorporates hiding places in the trees and grass-filled prairie garden with oak-woven pod dens, and new willow and pear trees planted to connect to the historical past of the land as a pear orchard. We worked with 90 children on a woodwork project, making a freeform arch into the prairie garden.
