studioMLA Architects provided conceptual design for The Children’s Cooperative Nursery School’s outdoor playscape. Working closely with staff and parents, studioMLA developed a plan that transformed the School’s existing space by providing multi-sensory play opportunities in a natural setting.

Features include a natural lawn play hill, an embankment slide, tree stumps for seating and for stepping stumps, a water pump with water troughs, and an enclosed sand area with seating and storage. Located in Newton, MA, the School has a capacity of 30 children and the project was completed in 2017.
