Dutch designers build a hospital playground round a recycled ambulance

Great design? Check. Sustainable use of recycled materials? Check. Project for a brilliant cause? Check – full house hombres! Dutch designers Pim van Baarsen and Luc van Hoeckel have just completed a playground for the Beit Cure hospital in Malawi which centres around an old ambulance. There’s also car tyres, springs and axles incorporated into the equipment which is all very worthy but first and foremost it looks fun and colourful and inviting for kids and big kids alike. Produced in association with the Sakaramenta organisation, the playground has taken over the site of an old car park and is sure to warm your heart as well as impress your head. Good work fellas!
