The Streetplaza in Kristianstad is a project which plays with the boundary between skatepark and urban space, by combining the materiality of the city with the functions of a skatepark. Located near the center of town, the Streetplaza bridges the gap between a large shopping mall and the canal, creating a welcoming place for both skaters and passersby.
Throughout the design process we worked closely with the municipality and a local reference group to create an innovative urban typology that is a paradise for street skaters. We believe that these types of projects play an important role in developing skateable spaces that are integrated into the urban fabric of a city.
