North West Park

Copenhagen's North West-quarter has in many years dealt with a bad reputation of being a polluted neighborhood with big social and economical issues. Through long citizen participation process SLA involved the local community in the design process and created -  in a close collaboration with the local residents – a magical and playful park that gave the community all what they wished for: Light, safety, nature and adventures in an exciting combination, creating an absolutely unique and characteristic community park. SLA won The Danish Light Awards 2010 for the park’s customized lighting concept.
