Lighting a skatepark

The construction of a public skatepark has recently started in Amsterdam's 'Sporthelden' neighbourhood. The work is expected to be completed by the end of 2019. The skatepark - the largest in the Netherlands - is intended for beginners as well as advanced skateboarders, BMXers and inline skaters.

The Urban Sports Zone has a park-like appearance and includes two sports fields, a jogging track and sports- and play equipment for all ages. The design was realized in close consultation with future residents and users.

The lighting for The Urban Sports Zone was designed by Studio Brink. It is not every day that our light designers get to work on a large scale public project like this. We believe we created the right mix of ambient light and light accents creating visual comfort, interest and a sense of safety.
