Hauser Plads Urban space and playground

The playground on Hauser Plads creates a break from the crowded city centre. The urban space has provided kids and adults of the area with new opportunities for play in an otherwise hectic everyday life the middle of the city. This way, the square creates a green oasis for the surrounding buildings and nearby institutions, as well as visitors to the area.

The weaving landscape is combined with areas of rubber and asphalt coatings, a circular sandpit and a pavilion for play equipment. The landscape varies in height and surface materiality, with simple lighting elements creating an inviting spatiality of light and shadow across the space.

The design of the landscape also provides a view down to the award-winning building Center for Renhold, which lies below Hauser Plads.
