Right in the Peninsula’s backyard, SouthSan Francisco artist Barbara Butler buildschildren’s play structures and her latestproject will help all kids — including thosewith disabilities — play on playgrounds.Butler, who runs her treehouse and customplay structures business out of a South SanFrancisco office, began this career in thelate ’80s after majoring in political sciencein college, then pursing writing and paint-ing. In addition to the residential work shedoes, she also helps with public projects,such as building an Americans withDisabilities Act friendly playground in PaloAlto that’s inclusive to all children.“I did construction to pay the bills,” shesaid. “I fell in love. … It combines play,sculpting, woods and the outdoors.”Originally from upstate New York, Butlermoved to San Francisco in 1983 and found-ed Outer Space Designs, designing andbuilding unique decks and hot tubs. In 1987,singer Bobby McFerrin and his wife request-ed Butler make a play structure for their twochildren. This is what really spurred Butler’scareer. Since then, she worked with clientslike Robert Redford; Will Smith and JadaPinkett; and Walt Disney Productions.Butler’s Rough & Tumble Outpost playstructure was highlighted as the FAOSchwartz “Ultimate Gift” in the 1999Christmas catalog. AButler playhouse wasalso used in the “Bicentennial Man” movie.“At first people told me, ‘you can’t dothat, it’s not a real job,’” said Butler, wholives in San Francisco.She moved the office for Barbara ButlerArtist-Builder Inc. to the Peninsula 15 yearsago during the dot-com bubble. In her SanFrancisco building, other tenants com-plained about the noise from her studio. “I moved to South San Francisco andfound a great old warehouse,” Butler said.Butler does travel a lot. She flies in fordesign meetings, but builds at the ware-house. Then, the company will fly in forinstallations, which take about three to fivedays to complete. She specializes in woodand custom builds.Fifty percent to 60 percent of her work isresidential, while the other part is for publicuse. Public use includes preschools, parks,developments and affordable housing proj-ects. One such public project she’s currentlyworking on is the Magical BridgePlayground in Mitchell Park in Palo Alto inconjunction with the city and Friends of theMagical Bridge, a project of Friends of thePalo Alto Parks. The project is for kids of allabilities — including children in wheel-chairs — and is ADAcompliant. The univer-sal access playground includes ramping sys-tems to enable wheelchairs to travel theentire length of the play structure; smoothrubber surfacing (instead of traditional barkor sand) to be friendly to those with limitedmobility; playhouse structure and commu-nity stage fully accessible to inspire imagi-nations; a raised sand play table; and TheQuiet Corner to invite people to gather, restor play chess. Construction should startthis summer and finish by the end of August.“The public ones are really close to myheart,” Butler said. “I get to hit kids of allincome brackets and am really shaping theirchildhood experiences. Magical Bridge isreally dear to me. I want to make it super,super fun for kids of all abilities. It’s foreveryone to enjoy.”For more on Butler visitbarbarabutler.com.
