About Us

Playstreet is a vibrant landscape architecture studio based in Hobart. We create landscapes which encourage community well-being through high quality contemporary design practice.

Playstreet is at the forefront of landscape architecture with a focus on broad community outcomes. In addition to an extensive list of school and nature based play projects, Playstreet has designed and delivered some of Tasmania’s largest and most prominent landscape architecture and playspace projects including River Bend Parkland, Launceston; Cataract Gorge Playspace; Kangaroo Bay Parklands, Bellerive; and Bridgewater Parkland. Playstreet is currently working on the Kingston Park Master Plan and playspace design, a project of national importance located in Kingborough, Tasmania.

Playstreet was founded in 2013 when Carl Turk and Miriam Shevland established their landscape architecture practice on the top floor office of a lovely Georgian building in Murray Street, Hobart.  Focussing initially on the design of nature-based playgrounds and a selection of residential projects, Playstreet steadily grew a portfolio of quality built work and loyal clients.

Having outgrown our original home, Playstreet can now be found in the vibrant midtown, where we manage a broad range of projects, from residential, wineries and school play spaces to large scale tourism master plans and parkland developments.

Our focus has always been to deliver a bespoke, beautifully considered landscape solutions specific to each place. We take great pride in our work and are constantly striving for innovative and unique responses for every project.
