Le Serpentin Playground in Paris

Playground honoring the architectural heritage

The residential building Le Serpentin twists like a snake around the 10 acres park with a playground in the middle. When the park was up for renewal, landscape architects wanted to do something that would honor the architectural heritage of Le Serpentin. Together with KOMPAN, they designed a playground in vibrant colors and exciting shapes. It turned out truly eye-catching and in the spirit of Le Serpentin’s architect Émile Aillaud.

Located in one of Paris’ most densely populated areas, the play area required designs to be of high quality and vandalism resistant materials, making the playground a perfect combination of impressive design and high levels of functionality.

 

Fun for all ages

The unique and impressive play structures of the vibrant colored loops guarantee endless amounts of fun for ages ranging from kindergarten to college. The loops allow for an array of physical activities such as climbing, balancing, sliding, jumping, and swinging - all important contributions to children’s physical development, and with its transparent design, parents can watch their children play from the comfort of their own homes. College students use the huge net surfaces of the loops to hang out and socialize with their friends.
