Making all your PLAYces educational, intentional, natural and INSPIRING!
Designing PLAYable landscapes that activate bodies, engage minds, and bring nature to urban-bound spaces.
At PLAYceMaker our goal is to identify your project's unique spirit. Then we collaborate with you and your stakeholders to give life and voice to your vision through our many-faceted design lens. We are a culture of educators, thinkers, artists, and makers who believe in the power of play, the giftedness of all children, and the necessity of magic.
Children the world over have a right to a childhood filled with beauty, joy, adventure, and companionship. They will grow toward ecological literacy if the soil they are nurtured in is rich with experience, love, and good examples. Alan Dyer (A Sense of Adventure)
Revealing Your Vision, Defining Your Needs
Is it a playable landscape, an outdoor or nature classroom, an interactive and educational exhibit, embedding STEAM initiatives outdoors, or another type of nature-infused opportunity you want to offer the chidlren you serve and educate? Once your need is defined, we'll help you fully articulate your unique vision.
Artistry and Function
We use your remarkable story to guide us in designing your elements and spaces. Each will have a strong relation to the other and create a flow and movement through your space that inspires experience, emotion, connection, relationship, and opportunity.
Concept to Completion
We support you in a myriad of ways throughout the stages of your project. Be it suggesting ideas for fundraising, helping you locate a contractor, supplying a contractor, helping you to arrange volunteer work days, training your staff - we're there for you well before the groundbreaking to beyond the ribbon-cutting ceremony.
