Upside-Down House Playgrounds

This UK Play Park's Features are Dream-Based and Multicolored

— February 7, 2018 — Life-Stages
The office of Alma-nac architecture drafted a competition-winning design for an upside-down house playground that is set to be built in the summer in the UK. The structure is not only multicolored, but is multi-functional as well. Some features include a drainpipe as a fire pole, a slide that emerges from the flipped front door, a concealed tunnel and a climbing wall that adjoins a window.

The floor is the sky, as the blue-colored ground is surrounded by white puffy clouds that can serve as resting spots for kids and the parents. Alma-nac succeeded in the imaginative design of the Upside Down House Playground, as it not only facilitates play among children, but also the concept itself stimulates contemplation, spacial awareness and fantasy.
