Integrates into the streetscape well!

land-studio:

Potgieterstraat by Carve in Amsterdam is an innovative re-envisioning of an inner-city street previously devoted to car traffic and parking. 

In the words of Landzine:

Carve’s intervention was firstly to rethink the street into a play street, accessible only to bikes and pedestrians. All surface materials were removed, the existing trees however were kept and new ones added. Into that clearance, Carve designed a mogul landscape with play objects integrated, materialized in abstract black rubber..

However, the true benefit of this design is not obvious on a first glimpse. It is rather the reclaiming of local urban realm by its community. Parents but also citizens without children interact and relax here on wooden benches and around a little kiosk…
