Co-design Climateproof resilient schoolyard in Amsterdam together with Studio Soma.

Botteloef

Challenges
Limited space, many children, completely paved with tiles, in an area with rainwater problems. At least 25% greenery to be added.
Process
Consultation and co-design of children thinking creatively along for playable rainproof solutions.
Making use of a strict design grid to create a planted play centre, enabling all sides to enhance different types of play.
Results
Reusing tiles to create seating & balancing walls, safe and playfully enclosed green islands, results in an optimisation of permeable and planted space combined with sufficient space to play for many children and the same time.
