Altona Early Years Hub

A new centre to service the Community in an established area of Altona

  • The sandpits are snaking shapes and the trees specified in large sizes to provide immediate shade
  • The heavily vegetated playspaces are punctuated with varies activity spaces and areas allowing staff can change-up the theme.
  • The language of Altona has been subtly brought into the landscape.  Channel markers at the entry, Pelican feet sandblasted into the entry paving and cubbies that represent the iconic refinery tanks
  • A tent gives the opportunity for children to sit outside in the rainy weather and experience the rain hitting the canvas.
  • Construction was beautifully completed by BC Gardens

Kalkee Children’s & Community Hub – Horsham

This was a twofold project for Ochre Landscape

It began as a landscape design for the centre and ended in a public art commission where we were engaged to design and construct a fun kids entry to the centre with a local indigenous influence. Thus the fish trap inspired tunnel.

  • It is very gratifying to watch the kids entering and exiting the centre all running through the fish trap.
  • The playspace is packed with trees including the large leafed Brachychiton ‘Bella Pink’
  • Local timber used for all decking and structures
  • Lots of activity spaces have been created throughout the landscape separated by tree planting including a maze of upright apple trees.
  • Construction by Scott Smith
