HERFST/AUTUMN PARK - Community Lead Design
Haarlemmermeer, Netherlands

During the design process complaints by the local community about the current public space were translated into a well-functioning design without losing the beauty and design language of the original design.

The design incorporated simple rectangular lawns for playing and rectangular areas with perennials in autumn colours. The rectangular form was chosen because it suited the simple lines of the original design. Furthermore the new design repositioned the benches into groups away from the houses reducing the noise pollution.

Completed in June 2010.
