Development of a playhouse concept for nature play (English)
Abstract [en]

Several households today have access to digital tools, which increases children's screen time. This is considered a threat to their health, as studies show that sedentary activity increases while physical activity decreases. The purpose of this work is to create a stimulating environment for children through a nature playhouse that offers challenging physical play. The work is done in collaboration with the company Utform AB, where the goal is to develop construction foundation for a final concept solution for the playhouse, by systematically using established product development processes. These processes include information gathering, concept generation, material selection, strength calculations performed manually as well as the Finite Element Method (FEM), and finally 3D-CAD modeling of the concept.

The result is a two-story building that combines different play equipment in a developed playhouse concept. The bottom floor offers ample space for play with the ability to store different loose materials from the nature and access to chair and table equipment. To get to the upper floor there is a ladder or a wooden log that serves as a climbing tool. Between the upper floor and the bottom floor there is a current panel tool that transports loose materials. The dimensioning of the playhouse and the play equipment is adapted to the SS-EN 1176 standard, existing solutions in the market and Utform's current range. For the basic construction, larch has been chosen as the most suitable material. Larch has particularly good strength properties and is resistant to the Swedish outdoor climate as well as being easy to process and environmentally friendly. Larch wood is also used advantageously since it is in line with Utform's current profile.
