Rhodes Waterside Silo TowersRhodes Waterside Photo BoardIn early 2016, Rhodes approached a number of parties to submit proposals for a major play space that:

  • Enhanced the experience of customers

  • Created a point of difference for the centre

  • Incorporated innovation and technology

  • Enhance facilities of the centre which already cater for families.

The location was approximately 60m2 and located around one of the centre’s inclinators with significant ceiling height.

Our approach to design was to not see the inclinator as an obstacle but as an opportunity. Hence we utilised one of our existing structures, the Silo, doubled its height (to 6 metres) and placed one either side of the inclinator. A plastic tube with windows then connected the Silos making a bridge over the inclinator. This gave the structure substantial visual appeal not just for the children but also for on-looking adults.
