Skatepark “NOORD” Amsterdam

OFMAA Architects as Architects

Three years after the closing om the skatepark on the NDSM Wharf, Amsterdam Noord found a new location for it’s indoor skatepark. This time it’s on the Hamerstraatgebied, situated on the north side of the IJ.


The renovated hall at the Aambeeldstraat offers 1400m2 space for skate activities, including recreation and lessons on every level. Besides, there is a 150m2 catering facility with a double function as a ‘canteen’ and external hospitality.


This newly created hospitality unit protrudes two meters from the original façade. The Glass entrance façade functions as an intermediary between the skatepark and the outside space. The timber frame construction of the façade is cladded with horizontal Fraké slats. The striking slope in the roof refers to the skate elements in the hall.  


The facade cladding continues on the inside of the clean finished park, consisting of merely with white walls, black constructions an grey floor elements.


The skate elements are an ode to 40 years street skating. For this, typical Californian sidewalks alternate with a classicistic fountain.


Most impressive spot in this formal storage shed is the circular balcony on the first flor of the bar. For this point, the visitor has a panoramic view of the skatepark.


A skatepark, built with minimal budget and constructed by skaters themselves.
