Before & After: A Softplay Renovation for London Children's Cafe

Sometimes clients come to us looking to improve a play structure they already have rather than start from scratch and it's amazing what can be achieved with some careful design work, new materials and a bit of TLC. The Apple Tree Children's Cafe in Herne Hill, London is a great example of this.

Founder of Apple Tree Children's Cafe, Emily Ajasa, came to us having bought the cafe and eager to update the play space. Emily wanted to create a cafe where the grown-ups can enjoy a nice coffee and a bite to eat while the little ones can enjoy a play space that's clean, safe and most importantly, great fun!

We worked with the original structure adding a tree, ball pit, wall pads, toadstools and artwork panels all incorporating the Apple Tree brand; creating a woodland themed play area that was guaranteed to keep the children entertained during their visit. The play structure is now much more in-keeping with the cafe and it's brand.
