    Holland Skate Plaza


    This space is a part of a larger re-development project and was originally slated to be a venue for social gatherings such as concerts and farmer’s markets. When the forward-thinking prime architect, Suburban Consulting Engineers, wanted to bring wheeled sports into the mix, we were invited to join the design team and lend our expertise. The goal then became a vibrant multi-use plaza that would primarily cater to skateboards and bikes, while remaining a welcoming space for the entire community.

    The thought was that the non-skating population would enjoy watching the action, as well as appreciate the sculptural nature of the skateable elements. And for skaters, a skatepark that doesn’t look like a skatepark, is truly a dream come true. Rather than feeling like an enclosed space where you are sentenced to ride, it feels like a naturally-occurring environment that just so happens to be perfect for skateboarding.
