Residents Pieter Weijnen of FARO Architecten and Mark Hekkert of INarchitecten proposed with several other parents to the school and the city to create something. With a neighborhood party money was raised, IJmere, a developer sponsored the project and the city doubled the money.
A planned boardwalk on the far side of the square was cut up and placed in the middle. The boardwalk was cut up some more and raised thus creating stimuli to sit and play. The bench is designed so that many different groups may will use it. An inviting and social spot in the neighborhood.
