When Piper Preschool asked DD+B to design and construct its new outdoor play yard for the West Los Angeles facility, the team was thrilled to bring the school’s emergent curriculum and imaginative vision to life in a beautiful 13,000-SF outdoor environment. Working closely with Piper’s ownership and teaching staff, we designed a one-of-a-kind play area that supports the school’s goals of inspiring and empowering children, all in a safe, nurturing natural environment.

Key Project Details

Designed a compelling concept for the outdoor play yard and completed the build-out on time and within budget

Designed and built two custom natural wood play structures, wet and dry sandboxes, art and woodshop sheds, wraparound benches and added corrugated metal roofs to the structures

Designed and installed a custom meandering cobblestone river to encourage connection with nature

Carefully evaluated child and caregiver behavior to inform the safest, most nurturing and inspiring environment, including evaluating play structure heights, walking paths and bridges, and placing controls on the cobblestone river to easily manage the speed of the water

Incorporated eight different species of flowering trees throughout the play area
