In Hennef, Germany a replacement skate park will be built. Part of the area, however, can be used only temporarily, the other part will be permanent. For these conditions to develop a coherent overall concept is our job.
The permanently usable area will receiving a pool/ Bowl made of in-situ concrete, at the temporary area in-situ concrete elements be placed on an existing asphalt surface. The first workshop with the future users has already taken place. With this workshop the users could integrate wishes and ideas into the design process. Moreover participation strengthens the acceptance and use for the park.
Within the participation process it turned out, that the locals like to have a mellow pool with spine-variations. Therefore the pool has an ideal flow for beginners and advanced skaters.
The temporarily used part is based on an open space area. The in-situ concrete obstacles lay in cobblestones, to give the user the impression of skating in the streets. Inside this streetarea you have a wooble, a flatrail, a pyramid with hubba and a table. The street area and the bowl area ar connected with banks and a handrail.
The active opening was on the 20. October. Besides trying the new skatepark out, users could have a little refreshment at the barbecue.
