The Crown Pub Play Space – Aston End, Hertfordshire
With a portfolio of similar establishments across the UK, our client wished to enhance the garden area, introducing a play space to cater for families.
Our Clients Vision
This project was a play area in a pub garden. The site had recently been acquired by the client as part of a portfolio of similar establishments across the UK.
Working with a prominent Landscape Architect and as part of the larger redevelopment of the entire garden area, the client wanted to create an inviting environment that catered to families by oﬀering an exciting play space alongside beautifully landscaped garden and seating area.
Developing ideas generated by the clients brief we designed a bespoke natural play space that worked within the constraints of the size and layout of the area.
The result was a well thought out design with clever positioning of play equipment to oﬀer the maximum amount of play in an otherwise awkward space.
Alongside a terraced entrance and grass mound with embankment slide was a hardwood timber 2 bay swing, net and rope climbing structure, a bespoke hardwood seesaw and a themed hardwood timber playhouse with tree deck.
The surfacing was ﬁnished oﬀ in a deep layer of play bark to allow for safe fall areas as well as in keeping with the natural feel of the space.
The Site Period
Our total time on site for the build was only 3 weeks.
The constraints of the site meant that layout of the equipment to be installed had to be accurately positioned to allow for a safe but challenging and engaging play space.
Working alongside other contractors oﬀered the opportunity to forge good working relationships and enable us to accommodate delivery schedules and proceed with the project in a positive way.
The Completed Project
Completion of this project was on schedule and to budget and all involved were delighted with the ﬁnished product.
Representatives for Theories were invited to the Grand re-opening of The Pub, which was well attended.
We received a huge amount of positive feedback and it was a joy to see the Gardens and play space being enjoyed by families.
