Client : Groningen Municipality
In 2015 we redesigned public spaces in De Hunze/Van Starkenborgh, a residential neighborhood in Groningen, the Netherlands. The goal was to make the neighborhood’s public spaces suitable for sportive activities.
The entire process focused on the desires of the residents. In a series of meetings, the residents shared their visions for their neighborhood, using interactive activities.
The final plan was called the “HunzeFit”: a new and unique playground, two football fields and an outdoor gym. Also, we designed the “HunzeMijl”: a one-mile running route through the neighborhood. The HunzeFit was opened in the spring of 2016.
