Roof Top Play was created for a Reggio Emilia inspired pre-school on the Upper West Side in New York City. Our task was to create a custom play structure, that provided specific gross and fine motor activities, and that also functioned as an organic artwork.

“Working collaboratively with this team of designers was inspiring. They were able to understand our pedagogical philosophy and translate it into a magical place for children to develop their physical strength, take age appropriate risks and foster their imaginations.”Lori Schneider

“In addition to being creative designers, they are also excellent fabricators who are a joy to work with. They don’t freak out at changes, and they deliver on schedule and on budget.”
