The bench is available in various versions and formats (length/ size/ color/ material) and available only through Westeifel. This bench is designed in a way that it can not be damaged by the use of skaters and bikers!

We were commissioned to design a dirt facility for mountain bike and bmx in Iserlohn, Germany.
As part of the urban development project “Lenne rail” a dirt facility is created on the bike path “Lenne Route”. The design was developed in close cooperation with the local youth. One advantage is that the youth don’t need to ride illegal and dangerous bike tracks.

There will also be water playground, which is build around the Lettenbach. Furthermore the Eisteich is going to be smaller, but a small beach will be built.
The reconstruction work of the municipal artificial ice rink (Eisteich, Theresienstein 4, 95028 Hof), which was planned by the office DIE HALLE architekten, has been completed. The first construction phase involved the implementation of the ice sports facility, the fistball field and the outdoor facilities, which already celebrated their opening.

Build your own skate element with a single box – we make it possible. The reconquest of public space, self-realization, intervention, guerrilla skating and to draw attention to current problems in the city are the basic ideas of this box. The initiative therefore comes in the wake of the future users and ideas can be implemented without detours via authorities and long processes. Through the bottom-up principle, ideas and suggestions for improvement can be effectively communicated to the people responsible.
Every skater can go into the nearest park to skate the existing obstacles. But who can say to build his own spot?
The first workshop for the bike and skatepark Dortmund, Germany was a great success.

In Curahuasi, Peru (about 2 hours west of Cusco) the central town square shall be redesigned as a recreational square, the Skatepark Peru shall arise.

Featuring a pool area with different skate elements arranged on the court surface. Also, a large multifunctional area is contemplated for events and other sports and leisure activities. We are curious whether and how we implement the project with Simon in the future.
