We Are Placemaking worked with Hammerson to produce the Esplanade Maze, with the addition of an urban treehouse in 2019. Our team worked closely with Hammerson on producing the event and delivered on design, health & safety and overall production.


This year, We Are Placemaking were tasked to increase dwell time within the maze and to create a more developed experience to enhance the 2018 edition. This lead to the design and installation of an urban treehouse space, for pop up activities. The Treehouse also provided a viewing platform for visitors to explore the maze from a different perspective.
