First look: Sjolander da Cruz's Wolves shelter

Sjolander da Cruz has completed this £75,000 shelter for children at a skate park in Wolverhampton

Sat on the centre of a traffic island in the heart of the Midlands town, the scheme features undulating ‘wave-like’ steel cantilevers over a brick terraced seating plinth.

The Birmingham-based practice claims the ‘design-led process’, which involved youth workers, local teenagers and artists, offered ‘an alternative to the mass-produced shelters that are available through catalogues’

Commissioned through Midlands Architecture & Design Environment and the Government office for the West Midlands, the project has been designed with engineers Buro Happold and local artist Gwen Heeney.
