Creating a play space where kids can squirrel around

Down

SSM Cardinal Glennon Medical Center, Rooftop Play Area

St. Louis, Missouri

Christner helped the Cardinal Glennon Foundation turn an empty rooftop into a play area that patients and their siblings can enjoy. The theme is centered around Rally Squirrel the Cardinal’s good luck charm for the 2011 World Series and a symbol of hope for Cardinal Glennon patients. In the center of the 2,000 sf play area is a large tree and Rally Squirrel feature. Christner worked with Tivoli Too of Minnesota to produce the giant fiberglass replica.

The play area features an exterior television monitor for Cardinal’s games and movies, musical elements, climbers, picnic tables, a soft play surface and colorful shade umbrellas. Kids can climb, spin, enjoy music, swing, create messy art projects and play a miniature putting green course. The existing window openings were covered by custom panels of kids at play, designed by Christner as a safety feature and a colorful graphic element.

Size: 2,000 sf
Status: Completed 2012
