Columbus Commons Indoor Playground
Location: Columbus, Indiana
Client: City of Columbus, IN
Copley Wolff Design Group was selected to redesign the interior playground located in Columbus Commons, a mixed-use development in the heart of downtown Columbus. The original custom-designed playground was an integral and essential part of the design of the Commons and is clearly a very special space within the community. The intent of the new design was to maintain the architectural character of the original design while utilizing new and safer materials.
The central feature of the new playground, located within the new 40-foot-high space, is a sculptural, custom-designed Tom Luckey climber. The surrounding playground contains multiple levels with various climbing mounds, tunnels, slides, maze walls, net, and block climbers, and spinning elements.
