In general, these courts in public space are designed to play soccer, at best also to play basketball. By adding two functional designed sides and integration with the existing landscape, a versatile place for young and old has arised.
By designing both sides of the sunken court in different ways, skating, sitting, basketball and soccer are combined in one facility. One side of the court consists of a layered lounge area, the other side of the field has a skate-able edge with elements like banks, transitions and boxes. Show in Google Maps.
