Make a neighborhood more playful, sportive & active.
Client: Groningen Municipality
Move & Play, Groningen
In 2015 we worked on the redevelopment of 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”: it included two football fields, an outdoor gym, and a new an unique playground – designed by Kompan.
Also, we designed the “HunzeMijl”: a one-mile running route through the neighborhood. The HunzeFit was opened in the spring of 2016.
