One of the main design intents was to match the water playground into the landscape. Location and contour of the basin is suited to the existing trees. We decided to use exotic wood on the floor in front of entrance and on benches around the basin. Fencing has also been made of wood as a parametric structure based on shifted sine waves. In this way we obtained delicate characteristic elements, wchich separate the basin. The pattern on safe basin floor has been adapted to arragment of water toys in the way referring to the circles on the water. In the evening the playground becomes a fountain with programmable multicolored LED performance.
