• Kagome Sandpit provides Natural Play for Kids in Vienna is designed with Japanese weaving technique

  • kagome-sandpit-1A sand pit is a great way to provide your children with a play area while you can monitor and also enjoy hours of activities. Keeping this in mind, the MuseumQuarter in Vienna commissioned PPAG Architects to design a sandpit for children in their inner courtyard. The artists then joined up with Simon Oberhammer and Stefanie Meyer to develop a structure out of living willow branches. Their beautiful sandpit in Museum Quarter is wrapped in greenery called Kagome. This growing structure provides playing area for children, accompanied with natural shading for the parents to monitor the kids. The name Kagome was inspired by a Japanese children’s song and an ancient Japanese weaving technique.
