Shipping Container Playground – By Phooey Architects Australia

Shipping containers as a Children’s playground makes a lot of sense especially taking one of the most indestructible pieces of equipment for moving stuff round the world in with some of the most destructive age groups on the planet. Kids are naturally wanting to play but creating a safe environment that also delivers a space for creative art, dance as well as meeting with friends the shipping container is perfect for the job.Melbourne-based Phooey Architects came up with this design to give kids in a South Melbourne public housing project somewhere to go. On top of the obvious it also assists the kids in learning about recycling as the projects materials down to the windows and fixings are all recycled materials. The hand rails, balconies and overhangs all come from recycled cut out pieces from the shipping container such as the door openings.

Love the look of the interior and exterior as it has “kids” written all over it with the design. I am sure the shipping container playground gets a lot of use by the local inhabitants.
