hochC Landscape Architects:这个占地4000m²的公共游乐场是柏林Springsiedlung社区的核心,它不仅是一个儿童游乐区,还是一个供所有邻里居民进行社交互动的场所。游乐场的设计与社区整体概念相呼应,同时还被赋予了鲜明的场地特征。

hochC Landscape Architects: The 4,000 m² public playground is the centerpiece of the large housing settlement Springsiedlung in the heart of Berlin. It is designed not only as a play area for children, but also an inclusive place for social interaction for all residents and users from the adjacent neighborhoods. The design of the playground not only fits in the overall concept of the settlement but gives the neighborhood its identity in an iconic way.

城市背景 The Urban Context


在上位开放空间概念(由hochC Landscape Architects开发)的基础上,我们面临的挑战是如何在现代改造与谨慎参考原住民时代特征之间取得平衡,以此保持街区的特色,并能从现代和多元化社会的角度对其进行诠释。

The Springsiedlung was built in the 1960s and is an urban symbol of that time. It consists of up to 8-story open row buildings with a high proportion of green space. This open construction method creates a park-like green space that is very permeable to the surrounding urban space. As part of the redevelopment of the entire neighborhood and the open spaces, the task was to also adapt the play areas to the social and ecological requirements of today.

On the basis of a superordinate open space concept (developed by hochC) the challenge was to achieve a balance between contemporary adaptation and careful reference to the characteristics of the time of origin, in order to take up the identity of the neighborhood and to be able to interpret it in the sense of a modern and diverse society.

设计语汇 Design Language


In order to establish a design reference to the overall concept of the settlement, the play areas are conceived in connection with the architecture by means of geometric play cubes. They are understood as an intermediate level or mediator between the high row development and the extensive open space. The formal language is derived from the basic geometries of circle, square and line. Steel rods are used to create a rhythmic staggering of heights. In keeping with the design approach of the time, not only the formal language but also the color scheme is taken up. The original color concept of pastel pink, blue and yellow of the facades, balconies and the paving is not only reflected in the playground equipment but is also found in the furnishings of the rest of the neighborhood.

包容性 Inclusion


Being part of a residential complex with over 1000 residents, the playground is not only a play area for children. Rather, it has the potential to improve the quality of life for all residents. The overarching goal was to create an inclusive, low-barrier place for all age groups to come together and practice cognitive movement skills. The most important conceptual reinterpretation is the bundling of the formerly many individual smaller play areas into two central, inclusive meeting spaces that frame the settlement alongside the architectural structures. As the new centerpiece of the area, the ‘neighborhood playground’ gains immense importance. It has become a social interaction space that offers room for play, movement and communication.

游乐体验 Play Experience


The playground equipment is developed project-based and in different multi-layered ways. Users only fully experience them during play. Various offers, such as the wheelchair platform with mirror cabinet, the barrier-free sand construction site and a pump track are specially designed for people with physical disabilities. In addition, the movement experience is promoted via requirements for coordination, speed, and height difference. Furthermore, the various senses are playfully stimulated by special surface textures, colors and degrees of difficulty. The high play cubes are nested within each other, offering emotional play experiences such as narrowness and expanse, as well as changing color games through colored plexiglass windows that bring light into the interior of the towers. This play area harmoniously adjoins an existing birch grove which is ideal for picnicking. Together with the numerous platforms and seating groups, public communal spaces are created for families and neighbors to spend time.

可持续性 Sustainability


In the spirit of a sustainable neighborhood, the ‘rock playground’ creates a close-to-nature experience. Here there is a naturally formed water stone, a water pump, a stone landscape with caves made of large limestones, as well as climbing routes and walls. Various ‘snack islands’ with edible fruits of perennial and shrub plants, as well as fragrant, insect-friendly plants add an environmental educational value. The play and recreation areas are lined by generous bee pastures, as well as landscaped areas of shrubs and bushes.

非正式游戏 Informal Play


In addition to the two central play areas, informal play facilities are integrated at certain points along the path. They serve as a stimulus for movement in everyday life, also for adults. These are, for example, balancing offers made of different natural materials such as wood and stone. Due to their unconventional shapes, they have a multifunctional character and are also used as seating elements.
