DESIGN

The desire to play appears naturally in all children. The process increases their confidence, their worldview open to new opportunities, develops social and verbal skills and helps them to make decisions in certain problematic situations. Since its inception in the early 20th century until today, playgrounds have changed dramatically. Creativity is infinite and the standards for durability and safety are much higher. However, it is important to remember that the process and the quality of the game can’t be bought, they are part of children's imagination. Therefore the purpose of designing playgrounds is to create an environment that will attract children and enriches their activities. The main issue in designing playgrounds is to provide challenging and fun activities while ensuring the safety of children.

 

Children’s facilities are constructed according to the number of rules , both in the project and in the implementation, they must comply with the following requirements: Ordinance 1 from 12.01.2009 for the terms and conditions of the structure and the safety of playgrounds, BDS EN 1176: 2008-equipment and flooring for playgrounds, BDS EN 1177: 2008 - impacted flooring for playgrounds - test methods.

 

The process of designing a playground, as well as in the design of public spaces, must begin with a thorough examination. For example, important information about the preliminary draft is how the children will come to the playground (on foot, by bike, by bus), will they be observed while playing on the playground, what will be the expected age range and how many children are expected to be there. Knowing how and what resources are available, we can make the necessary decisions.
