Fun, framework and form
Situated in Northland between Whangarei and Dargaville, Tangiteroria School is surrounded by nature. The school offers a small and friendly rural learning environment with strong support from the local community.
The main play equipment had no natural protection from the sun which is why the school’s Principal asked Shade Systems to provide a solution to protect the children from harmful rays and rain during intervals and lunch.
Split across two parts with a sandpit and jungle gym, Shade Systems came up with a unique HipShade with HyparShade sails attaching to it providing the shade required off the sides, producing a neat mix of framework and form. To give the design a sleek finish, the framework was painted with black enamel.
