Testing ground no.1
The development of the project is in collaboration with Bureau Binnentuinen, "Tegels eruit, groen erin!" and New Metropolis, with whom we have been exploring ways for renovating and greening the street which is located in Burgemeester Rendorpstraat/Noordzijde in Amsterdam New-West.
The currently unused space in front of New Metropolis (Amsterdam New west) is a concrete place which deserves more green and attention.
Entrepreneurs and residents nearby have a daily access, so our first concern was to find out what the needs/wishes of the neighborhood were.
The purpose of the design is to create a green sustainable place where it would be pleasant to spend time at any part of the day. A green square has been added in our thoughts which will merge with the surrounding green Sloterpark. An open, accessible and small-scale green 'district' is created and connects the highly urban environment with the natural environment of the park.
It enhances the biodiversity within the city but also ensures climate adaptation , for example by saving water in small streams (wadi's ) and by using sustainable and waterproof materials.
