NL Architects and Platform Openbare Ruimte teamed up to transform a vacant space into a fun and functional play area.

Construction in Netherlands is currently sluggish and almost at a standstill, leaving many projects unfinished or stuck in the pre-construction phase. In Amsterdam, this results to many sites left unused and vacant lots scattered everywhere, with some being utilized as temporary parking lots.

To liven up the space, local organizations NL Architects and Platform Openbare Ruimte transformed an empty parking lot on the Amsterdam Harbour Club grounds into a functional mini-golf course.

The architects were asked to work with a budget of 2,500 Euros to explore ‘how a small intervention could help spark city life and contribute to the temporary use of these left over sites in the city.’

The putting green is made of inexpensive materials and includes nine holes distributed on one side of the vacant lot.

The project allows families and other members of the community to engage in a game or two of mini-golf before going to the club. The project also shows a positive way of dealing with the current issues in the construction industry.
