Josh Byrne & Associates (JBA) in collaboration with Victorian based Jeavons Landscape Architects (Jeavons) has recently been awarded the detailed design of the new multi-million dollar Calista Adventure Playground located on the Calista Oval in Kwinana. The playground will take into account the sensitivities of the mature trees on site and utilise the existing natural shading from these eucalypts in this beautiful location.
The new all ages and all abilities playground will provide families with a unique playspace featuring a multitude of custom designed nature inspired elements including water play and sensory play.
Drawing on community consultation and concept design work previously undertaken by NSW firm, Architects of Arcadia, the JBA team will continue working with the City of Kwinana and its communities. JBA will bring together a team of professional engineers and playground experts to deliver what will be one of Perth’s premier playground destinations in the heart of Kwinana.
This much needed facility will provide residents with upgraded amenities and linkages to the new Kwinana town centre and will also include an upgrade to the existing skate park.
The JBA / Jeavons approach will ensure the design maximises the sites existing topography and trees. Natural materials will be used throughout and play elements will be incorporated in the playgrounds infrastructure such as within walkways, seating, platforms and walls.
The City of Kwinana has chosen JBA to ensure sustainability is captured throughout the adventure playground. This includes materials re-use, water and power efficiency and storm water treatment.
During the next six months, the JBA team will be working hard to deliver detailed design and documentation ready for construction in 2015.
