Designed by MERA Makers Design Lab, this children’s playground is a real island with a lighthouse, cave, treehouse, and water. With 10 sqm in size and located in Russian small town Sarov, Kid’s Island becomes a play space that can give every child the personification of what every adult dreamed of during the quarantine of coronavirus. It is made of plywood with some plexiglass elements.
Finished exactly during the pandemic of coronavirus, this personal island offers everything needed for the children. The playground is made of plywood and occupies 6 sqm including various activities for children. Treehouse is the most desirable for all kids in this playground. There is also a landscape bassin to create an island look.
The playground in this project has geometric shapes, a minimalistic design, minimum details, and multidimensional space so the children can focus on the game. With three levels, this playground also serves as a background for the game so the children can choose their playing space.
Besides the plywood, this playground also has some elements. The children can observe the world through different colors while adults can observe the children and be out of sight. The children can have fun and the adults no need to worry as well.
In order to create a complex and interactive place for the children, mirrors are placed high which can’t be reached but still can spy what’s happening in the playground. This playground is not only a place for the children to play but also to learn how to interact with each other.
