Climbers and Creepers - London

Client: Kew Royal Botanic Gardens

An interactive play area for young children at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. Climbers and Creepers is a magical, child-centred evocation of the world accommodating enormous changes of scale and levels of reality. It was conceived as an ‘imaginary landscape’ – a low, undulating grassy bank where conservation messages are explored through unexpected encounters with plants.

Ten years on the play space continues to be the key destination within Kew Gardens for children and families.
