We had a small interview with the Founding Partner of Atelier Hamra MAHA ISSA the landscape architect behind our new project "Saifi Playground"
What can you tell us about Saifi Gardens playground?
We had worked on Saifi urban gardens landscape some 10 years ago, and we were very happy when we were asked to re-work on the garden and turn it into a playground.The site is interesting because it is man made: initially the level of the natural terrain is much lower and has been raised using rubble, large rocks, and soil. The nature of the site set the concept: creating a natural playground using the topography itself. The experience we would like to offer the children when playing there is a small adventure including being perched up in a tree house, hiding within a tunnel, balancing on wood stomps and logs, swinging and net climbing.
