PARK SOMERLUST by Felixx
The park is located on the former site of the Southern Gas Factory, which is transformed into a new mixed-use city district, called Amstelkwartier.
The park is both part of the city-wide network of public spaces along the Amstel, and creates a strong identity carrier for the ambient neighborhoods. The design stacks different ambitions: integrating slow traffic networks, offering space for temporary events, programming the riverfront with sports- and hospitality industry, establishing ecological links and breeding grounds.
The walking and cycle path from the city center to the rural area around Amsterdam is the backbone of the design.
