Girls and Boys Youth Brigade Play Space Surry Hills, NSW

The Girls and Boys Brigade is a non-for-profit charity organisation providing a space within inner Sydney for learning and recreational programs for children, youth and their families. Hayball was engaged on a pro-bono basis to assist in visualising and documenting upgrades to the existing learning and play spaces.

Hayball conducted a series of workshops with staff and children, allowing them to communicate their needs and dreams for the space. Hayball’s plans included a lift that would service all levels of the building, as well as an upgraded basement with a sports-grade floor that is comfortable and welcoming for children of all abilities.

The building is a safe space for families and children experiencing a range of financial, social, educational and housing challenges. The space focuses on positively supporting the development of students and children through a diverse range of learning experiences from quiet and reflective spaces to explorative and climbable cubby structures as well as other recreational activities.
