Revolutionary childrens play space opens in the Sydney Corporate Park
Nubo, a new concept in children’s play spaces, has launched in the Sydney suburb of Alexandria.
The first facility of its kind in Australia, Nubo, meaning cloud, is a highly designed space that helps children and families play, explore, connect, grow and learn together.
Occupying an area of 767 metres² among the mixed leisure attractions of the Sydney Corporate Park, Nubo’s harmonious setting utilises different floor levels instead of walls, soft lighting, natural materials and curves, to create a safe but boundless environment for children to enjoy.
Nubo offers what it calls ‘pure play’ spaces where families can draw enjoyment from connecting with each other together, including an extensive children’s library surrounding a giant hot air balloon where children can curl up to read their favourite book; a building room full of Big Blue Blocks, MagFormers, Lego WeDo 2.0 and Kaleido Gears; a workshop room to explore music, drama, robotics and more, a café where children can make a range of healthy dishes including Nubo’s signature pizzas with the space’s resident chef; a zone for active play complete with opportunities to slide, climb and hide; and a range of children’s master classes including cake making and painting.
Nubo was conceived and designed by Frost*collective in collaboration with Joey Ho and Patrick Leung of Hong Kong-based PalDesign Architects.
Built around best practices for early childhood education through the lens of play, the new centre is designed for children up to 10 years old.
Introducing the Nubo concept, a company spokesperson explained “the aim of Nubo is to steer away from the typical play centre clichés of bright colours, plastic toys and computer screens.
“We are promoting a sense of ‘pure play’ through a beautiful, clean and considered space where parents and children can interact during the entire play process.
“We know that play nourishes children’s early development and we want NUBO to be part of that journey.”
