GISSV Kinder Play Yard
Mountain View, CA
BASE worked with the German International School of Silicon Valley’s Mountain View campus to assist them in the redevelopment of their Kinder Play Yard. This play space engages children ages two to six years old.
Working within a tight schedule and a small budget, BASE focused on surface features that would incorporate fun, engaging, and colorful elements. Of the designated Kinder Play Yard area, half had to be left open for fire truck access so we turned it into a painted pollinator trike path. In the remaining space we incorporated a cushy artificial turf outdoor classroom space, a tipi, a play structure, a pirate ship, playful mushroom stumps, a sand pit with a water trough, raised vegetable planting beds, and planting for pollinators.
