The aim of the proposal is to create a universal place where all the three generations would feel comfortable. It should be a place where all the three generations would feel comfortable. It should be a place that everyone will like, the space where they can communicate with each other. where one can play and have fun and the other one can just relax, watch others play and even join them

project consists of three conceptual elements: “green hill”, “circular stair-bench” and “street lamp forest”.

Green hill – you can walk around it, climb over it, lie on a top, and just feel the nature. Nature is the place where everyone of every age feels comfortable, relaxed, healthy, joyful etc. This proposal offers everybody to get closer to the nature.

Circular stair-bench – It goes around the hill and consists of concrete structure and modular wooden elements. While older people can sit on it, younger ones can lie on wooden bench and kids can even climb and run on the stairs, jump from there etc.

Street lamp forest – It serves for lighting, but also it is used as a part of a playground. Random arrangement of posts imitates trees in the forest. Children can run between these metal trees trying to catch each other, young couples can lean against the post to give each other a kiss in a romantic evening under the soft lighting of the street lamp.

Playground can be used successfully according to its concept on every season of the year.
