Challenge

The central square of Amstelveen, near Amsterdam in the Netherlands, was revitalised with a series of green benches, Hug a Tubs planted with tall bamboo, and spacious Beethoven Benches combined with CorTen Tree Grids.

These new Streetlife elements were selected to blend with the high-quality surrounding architecture. 

Solution

Beethoven Benches have been placed at the edges of Amstelveen’s city square. The benches have a robust appearance and exude a distinct elegance, while the gracefully designed backrests provide pleasant support for both children and adults alike.

CorTen Tree Grids have been applied in line with the extended bench configurations. The grids protect the growing space of trees and accentuate the edges of the square.

The large Hug a Tub tree planters were fitted with robust hanging benches that were designed to blend with the style of Beethoven Benches. To reinforce the design coherence, Amstelveen opted to powder coat both elements in an anthracite grey colour.

Outcome

A lot of people find it pleasant to spend time in green areas and shrubbery often provides shade and a sheltered or secure feeling.

Streetlife's Hug a Tubs have been playfully arranged in Amstelveen’s market square to give this ambience, and their mobile system means that many different configurations can be changed to accommodate the busy square’s various activities.

Streetlife designed the hanging benches for the Hug a Tubs to combine perfectly with the Beethoven Benches and give an integrated design in the square, as well as to complement the surrounding architecture.
