Dubai, United Arab Emirates - 2016
Dubai Creek Harbour is under a massive construction work as it is to be transformed into an extensive and impressive new residential area by The Real Estate Development Company EMAAR. The area will make space for more than 400,000 people and will also include the Creek tower, which will be the world’s tallest building. The architectural and engineering work of the building is exceptional and will be an icon of the city. To create a vibrant local community, MONSTRUM was asked to design a playground area by the harbour and to work with the sea as an overall theme. The result was a colorful and elegant playground with a yellow submarine, a whale and an are with a group of fish and seagrass.
The yellow submarine catches the eye of everyone passing by. This is not a coincidence.
The kids can climb inside the submarine and sit by the table, playing passengers of the adventurous ride under water.
DIVE DEEP WITH THE YELLOW SUBMARINE
Besides the bright yellow, the playground is held in blue and grey colors. The calm blue and grey shades of the sun sails and the flooring makes you feel like you are under water and compliments the energetic yellow of the submarine.
The many trunks of different heights of the playground creates a forest of seagrass and many play features for the kids.
Rope and hammocks are connected by the trunks for the kids to relax and balance on.
