The city of Gelsenkirchen commissioned us to plan a new skate park. In coordination with future users, a concept was developed that meets all requirements from a constructional and sporting point of view. A wide range of trend sports will be created on the central square of the district park, framed by trees and uniformly designed furniture. Here you will skate, BMX-, scooter- or inline-ride. There will also be opportunities for wheelchar motocross (WCMX) or basketball. Strolling visitors to the […]
We were commissioned with the planning of the second construction phase of the skate park on Landgrabenweg by the city of Bonn. The first construction phase with the street area was completed in autumn 2018. The second construction phase provides for two bowl areas. After we collected ideas with the association, the first workshop already took place. In the next few weeks, intensive coordination with the association will be carried out, so that we can start construction in spring 2021.
The new, competitive inline speed skating track will be built on the grounds of the district sports facility in the Scheibenstrasse.

The construction of this almost 5000 square meter facility is funded by the city of Cologne, the district […]
We got the order to renew the skate park in Geilenkirchen’s Wurmauenpark. This park already offers a lot of possibilities for the visitors and should now be even more attractive. Since the existing skate facility is increasingly damaged after many years of use, we will now plan and build a great new facility for the skaters in the same place.
Wir haben uns schon sehr auf unseren Workshop gefreut, der am 18.3. stattfinden sollte, um mit euch den neuen Skatepark zu planen. Leider muss darauf in diesen Tagen, in Hinblick auf die Verbreitung des Corona Virus, verzichtet werden. Eure Ideen sind aber dennoch willkommen und können an Herrn Barz von der Stadt Kevelaer geschickt werden: firstname.lastname@example.org

Our project coordinator Gabu wanted to head […]

Our skate park in Damascus was completed in 2019. Tobi from Skate-Aid recently made his way to Syria – in his luggage: 60kg (!) skateboard stuff. Still the only way to provide the workshops in Qudsaya / Damascus with the necessary material. Due to the political situation, it is not possible to send packages to Syria, or to fly there directly. Entry was only possible through Lebanon and with the help of the good contacts of the project partner, the […]
