Robinia Playhuts and Playhouses


A cozy home on the playground

Robinia Playhuts and houses are cozy, familiar places to retreat to, to meet, share secrets, organize and plan. For small children, a playhouse is a safe haven and miniature introduction to home life. Too small for adults, it is where they are the ‘boss’ and can create their own storylines. These small structures are inviting and the perfect space to learn how to communicate and share with friends. Open-sided with benches, playhuts and houses create an opportunity for training hand-eye coordination by, perhaps, working with a bucket and spade.  

The Robinia wood is the perfect material. It’s closely-knit grain, lightness in color and smooth surface offers a warmth that makes it irresistible to small children. It is a tactile wood that also stands up well to the trials of weather. The construction is equally friendly, with smooth, curved edges helping to ensure that play is totally confined to fun.

The huts and houses are the perfect way to introduce children to the wonderful world of nature. There is no need for special surfacing. In fact, they sit comfortably and naturally in rough grass, or in a pit of sand. Representing great value in economic terms, the compact size also allows the huts to be add-ons to larger sites, or turn a restricted space into an attractive play area. 

The Robinia tree is a triumph of nature. As a tree, at every level it performs. It grows in poor soils, it feeds nitrogen into the earth encouraging other plants, it flowers to be the source of Acadia honey, its leaves breathe out Co2. It adapts well in urban areas, gracing many boulevards and streets. When cut as timber, the stump regenerates and grows back quickly. It is highly sustainable. The timber is fine-grained, strong and durable - the perfect material for play features. 

Another aspect that displays itself with Robinia is that it dictates how it is used. Each piece is unique and this brings a degree of individuality to the huts and houses. 

How do we get started? 

Finding the right products from the extensive range is the starting point. We encourage you to click and to be inspired by the amazing playgrounds we have installed around the world. Our very competent and experienced support team can then help you translate your wish list into your unique outdoor solution. Feel free to contact us and ask all your questions or to receive a quote.

The benches illustrated are all on the right-hand side, if it better suits, can they be on the left?

The huts and houses, along with multiple swings, follow a common selection to production to installation curve. They come as standard as in the brochure and then there are options like colour and flooring in the customisation section. Finally, to make sure you get exactly what you need, there is a department, the Variants Team, who can modify to requirements.

Any possibilities to avoid wood in-ground?

Yes, with uniquely designed KOMPAN steel footings that elevate the Robinia wood above ground level.
