Red Walls, Oakland CA

By adding a bold splash of red, we transformed an existing grey wall into a vibrant new look accented by graceful bamboo and vines. The upper level became the outdoor playroom with a climbing wall and checkerboard floor made from recycled tires. The lower level becomes an extension of the living room with seating made from an old Oakland bridge, a firepit and a fountain. The planting is simple and made up of bamboo, grasses, and vines. A Sunset Magazine Dream Garden: Small Space Winner 2008-2009.

Why would you comment about something you don't know anything about. Actually, someone even larger would climb on something as thin as a dime. Its called edging. Mabey you should vist your local climbing gym or depending where you live, if there are areas where you can rock climb, see for yourself what size can actually do. Check it out. You might enjoy it. Climb on.

Is that floor made of concrete? - If so, are those custom colors or how do they make those colors?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Homes Get a Lift From Climbing Walls
"We suggested a climbing wall as an option, as we have avid climbers in the office and the client requested play options for their active girls," says Jamie Morf of Shades of Green Landscape Architecture. "We contacted a local climbing gym for help with the layout and choice of climbing holds and gave them the parameters of the ages of the girls and the space available."As for safety, "the fall height was limited by the height of the wall, and rubberized safety surface tiles of the appropriate thickness for the fall height were used near the wall," she says. "The holds are placed such that it is more of a horizontal traverse than a vertical climb, so the children are never more than several feet off the ground."
9. Wrap a climbing wall. I know you Houzzers are concerned about safety, especially when it comes to your kids. A local climbing gym composed the this wall's setup, the height limited potential falls, and the surface underneath is rubber. Learn more about home climbing walls
"I climb myself and set up the holds to be very kid easy," Haugeland notes. "They are really easy to move around if they ever want to change them up." The flooring here is made of recycled rubber tires. Its thickness and the rubber feet beneath each tile create a soft landing.
Both natural and synthetic rubber products can be recycled to form new products or to repair damaged ones. Luckily, recycling rubber uses far less energy than producing new rubber, reducing the demand for new product and preventing rubber tree plantations from expanding into sensitive ecosystems.
