Made From Scratch

Development, consultancy, design and construction of play focused, gorgeous spaces that are unique, green, challenging and robust.


A social enterprise based in East London that specialises in constructing innovative artistic play spaces which are truly a sanctuary for the imagination. Founded in 2011 from the inspiring, endlessly creative world of London adventure playgrounds, Made from Scratch has retained their values of providing access to challenging, exciting and unique landscapes across the city. 

By promoting community participation in the construction process of their playgrounds young people become empowered with new skills of design and carpentry in addition to a sense of ownership of the urban landscape. Principals of authenticity, rigour and care are woven into how they approach all stages of a project. A design and build company that is not driven by profit, but the effective social impact which has ensured their reputation thrives alongside a love of creating imaginative spaces. 

This has led to collaborations with architects, artists, local authorities, Schools and philanthropists in addition to winning demanding tenders for high spec design + build. Smaller projects involve the same levels of attention to detail with clients as collaborative partners to create cost-effective, durable, bespoke playscapes and artistic interventions from treehouses, sculptures,  drop slides and sensory gardens.
