Design for playground fence.

This nursery fence for Ashmole Primary School replaces a chainlink fence which was in tatters after just two years of use. Robustness was essential, but the design also had to address security issues and provide new seating. To keep costs down, the fence uses existing steel fence posts as reinforcement for the block piers, which can also be used as planters. The marine ply boards act as infill panels between these piers, and are enlivened by cut out and applied letters originating from the name of the school.
