  13. 13. Concept Proposal: Infant features (0-2 years) Require modulated sensory stimulation and increasing physical opportunities. 1. Things to look at from horizontal and vertical position. 2. Protection from excessive sun, wind and rain. 3. Places to crawl. 4. Items to pull themselves up on. 5. Ability to watch and not be knocked over. 6. Waving grasses and plants. 7. Clombers on vertical surfaces to attract birds and but- terflies. 8. Soft surfaces to creep on. 9. Sloped surfaces instead of steps for safe crawling. 10. pleasant colours and sounds. Legend Shade & shelter Planted Sloped Soft grass Stone monolith Vertical from canopy elements surfaces surfaces for pulling onto climbers P11
  14. 14. Concept Proposal: Toddler features (2-4 years) Require places and spaces for acting out prepositions - over, under, on top off, up and down, because physical development is paramount and fuels cognitive advancement. 1. Safe appropriatley sized structures, mounds and slpoes to clamber up and down. 2. Walkways and soft surfaces for practicing walking, then running and pushing wheeled toys. 3. Protection from excessive wind, rain and effects of the sun. 4. Sand to aid cognitive development. 5. Trees to provide shade and elements of interest, such as pinecombs. Legend Flat surfaces for Sheltered space Sand Structures for Existing walking and running crawling, clambering trees and climbing. P12
  15. 15. Concept Proposal: Pre-schooler features (3-5 years) Rapid physical development, increas- ing social and languagage skills require a space with many opportunitis. 1. Running, climbing, hopping, jumping, sliding, dancing and spinning. 2. Areas, paths and slopes for tricycles, wagons, wheelbarrorws etc. 3. Storage space for equipment (props, art supplies, mobile play equipment etc). 4. Gardening, advance cognitve understanding and appreciation of nature. 5. Sand and water. Increase knowledge of physical world, creative expression. Provides entry point to social play with others.

  26. 26. Outdoor musical, sensory and interactive installations & possible site placement. As part of the brief, the inclusion of hearing and sensory elements were one of the core considerations when resolving the Under-fives play space to aid the development of their cognitive knowledge. The items i’ve selected i believe provide a range of experiances and introductions to different sounds and activities. The installations were also chosen for their robust construction which could stand the vigours of boundless energy. A. Mounted and free standing Chimes. Eight x 50mm diameter chimes tuned to the notes of ABCDEFGABC Outdoor instruments mounted on a timber frame standing 1.5m in height. B. Spiral Chimes. Outdoor instruments Eight individual chimes mounted on timber frames which increase in height (1.2-2m), with the chimes placed along circular path. D. Drum set. C.

  32. 32. Aims and ambitions: Edgar Road community Centre; Zone B. Ambition for Zone B is to apply the principles of Homezones as part of a phasing that could be gradually employed to other sections of the estate. Homezones term is used to describe a site containing an infrustructure of roads or streets, where pedestrians and vehicles share the whole road space on equal terms and quality of life takes precedance over ease of traffic movement. Based on the notion that motorists entering Homezone know they have left the normal highway and entered an area where they can expect pedestrians to be using the whole street. Benefits Elements 1. Promote quality of life for residents and remove 1. 10mph speed limit within homezones. traffic barriers to promote community relations. 2. Lifting of street surface to pedestrian kerb level. 2. Attractive and interesting spaces that reflect local Removes feature which motorists link to having pri- needs and encourage activities in the street. ority over pedestrians. Denotes change in status of street. 3. Marriage of functional and aesthetic considrations. 3. Play areas have no bounderies or fencing from 4.
