Edith Philipsen (Head Teacher Smithy Street Primary School) Nov 2012

I was delighted to find and choose Theories Playscapes Ltd to work with in order to develop a whole playground solution for our school. Theories stood out easily from their competitors in terms of creative play design experience and project management expertise, offering a comprehensive bespoke design and build package that saw the project through from the very first meeting to last bolt tightening, all the while consulting and liaising effectively.

Theories helped us comprehensively and imaginatively re-think the whole of the outdoor play spaces, dealing with both the physical environment as well as management issues we were experiencing, such as some challenging lunch time behaviour. We have found playtime behaviour greatly improved since so many new activities and play features were introduced and the tarmac expanse broken up into smaller and more attractive and intimate play areas with different inherent characteristics and purposes. The children in Smithy Street primary have repeatedly commented on their delight with their new play environment.

We continue to work with Theories to tweak and develop new play solutions as they are required.

 Ball Play London

You either love it or hate it, but in playgrounds the compromise is how much space ball play dominates the play space, and what is left for everyone else to do. The design of ball play areas, as far as Theories is concerned, is a means of subtly restricting the spread of play whilst not making the result become a cage. But the fence around the...

This play solution is part of a three phased programme to revitalised a tired and boring junior play area. Phase 1 comprised an integrated performance deck with seating under a colourful shelter structure.

 Collaborative Art Works

Embedded within the Theories design ethos the inclusion of children’s play ideas, spatial awareness, and artistic contribution has always been paramount. Where children have taken an active part in the conception of a playspace there tends to be a greater sense of ownership and, subsequentially, care of that environment; and where they have been...
