At the moment indoor-play-centers appear wherever you look. A wide variety of exciting play architecture is available. Every center is equipped differently. But they share a common mistake. Their devices are chosen randomly and and offer superficial play effects. We can do better.
Together with our clients we develop an overall idea which leads into fantastic theme worlds. These include gambol as well as climbing zones, usable by kids and adults jointly. After they let of steam, kids normally continue with role playing and keep going until they are called home. As the children play together with the objects, every new visit offers a new world to them.
For KeHo-Hall individual theme worlds had to be invented: "town center", "jungle" and mangrove wood" were situated above and next to each other.
While at ground level streets cross and kids can use all kinds of vehicles to run swiftly through the street canyons, a tangle of nets, ropes, bridges, catwalks and treehouses hang up above - a pure climbing jungle
From here it is a true challenge to look down beneath through the green floating "jungle floor" where the streets of the town can be perceived quite well. When layaway through the criss-cross of the trees one discovers treehuts which are nice spots for a little rest. There is Joes Bar, the little corner shop or the jungle doctor who sells herb medicine or does an eyesight test. Dedicatedly arranged role play installations invite the kids to play one with another.
Next door adventurous rafts and swimming platforms seems to bob up and down in the shallow ballpit "water" between huge mangroves. They are connected by trunks and ropes.
