water playground in Tychy

RS+ Robert Skitek as Architects

One of the main design intents was to match the water playground into the landscape. Location and contour of the basin suited to the existing trees were based on functional-utility program developed by "Aquater". We decided to use exotic wood on the floor in front of entrance and on benches around the basin. A major challenge was to secure the basin against unwanted animals and people, taking into account influence of fence on the landscape. Fencing has also been made ​​of wood as a parametric structure based on shifted sine waves. In this way we obtained delicate characteristic elements, wchich separate the basin. Technical rooms were covered with grass to minimize the impact of volume on the landscape. Colorful aquatic toys were selected to differentiate their performance. In addition, the zone for younger children was created with less spout water toys. The pattern on safe basin floor has been adapted to arragment of water toys in the way referring to the circles on the water. In the evening the playground becomes a fountain with programmable multicolored LED performance.
