2017 - SCHOOL YARD FLOW PARK - WEST COAST, NORWAY
Working together with Gullik Gulliksen we designed a unique skate-space to take pride of place amongst the modern new schools exceptional outdoor facilities.
We carefully considered the unique space and its integration within the school setting. The skatepark should form an integral part of the playground for attendees of the school, whilst remaining the sole skate-facility in the surrounding area.
The skatepark’s form draws inspiration from the coastline’s rich surf environment. Undulating curves and waves form a multi-level ,open-bowl and interconnected street path.
Shallow depths and rolled edges create a safe and playful environment for young users, whilst experienced riders can challenge themselves with more complex lines and transfers across the terrain, carving, grinding and catching air.
