Play is a means of learning to live, an interactive exploration of the possibilities of this world and our place in it. Fiona Robbé Landscape Architects create unique playful experiences for all ages and abilities.
Kelso Community Hub
We were thrilled to receive a Parks and Leisure Australia NSW/ACT Award of Excellence for this project in 2020!
The playspace is described as “providing a vibrant, innovative and interactive area for the local community”.
Arcadia Public School Sandpit
A labour of love at our local public school! We are so excited to see this project completed in time for Term 3.
Samuel Gilbert Public School
Anyone recognise this dinosaur? This was a beautiful project at another local school, with a fun Flintstones theme, including large sandstone boulders, logs, teepee and of course, Fred’s trusty brontosaurus!
Instinctive, voluntary, spontaneous play is vital to develop the potential of all children.
My practice firmly commits to the notion that investment in quality play environments is one of the decisive social investments in a sustainable, peaceful, cross-cultural future.
Australia is a signatory to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, and the work of our practice respects these principals.
celebrate the joy and spontaneity that children bring to our lives;
communicate to children that they are valued, important people in our society; and
welcome children and their families and carers to an environment where their needs, interests and abilities have been reflected in the landscape design.
We strive to uphold the theory of Universal Design to its highest ideological interpretation – for people of all ages, abilities and ethnic origins to feel included in the play environment, and to accomplish this at all levels: socially, emotionally and intellectually.
Our playgrounds explore the rich and unique ambiance of their settings, while intensifying the focus on children’s needs and experiences in an environment of exuberance, challenge and wonder.
