Designed by Polish studio Atelier Starzak Strebicki in Poznań, the Courtyard City Hall has been transformed from a car park into a meeting place for residents.
Green oasis, street café, community centre, public square. These are the new incarnations of the Courtyard City Hall which was transformed from a car park into a meeting place for residents. The Courtyard located in the Old Town received a second life: it became an open, multifunctional public space.
The square has been furnished with a family of objects referring to different needs of groups of users. With a round big bench around the existing flower-bed and mobile seats that can be organized into an amphitheatrical arrangement together with a podium.
These elements may be used for seating, lying or cascade sitting referring to the scheme of auditorium in theatre. All the objects hold flowers and trees planted in flowerpots and high grass that give intimacy and coziness to the urban space.
