Place-making/place-testing

HUNK-design is committed to improving the city close to the locals. By creating positive experiences for people to enjoy, to have a smile and to participate in. To achieve this we use place-making. We change generic urban spaces into valuable places.

The benefit of place-making is that it is organized together with the neighbourhood. It is temporary and relatively easy to realize. When a neighbourhood is too complex, when a space has a wider reach than the directly surrounding locals and when a municipality is in doubt about certain improvements, then we use place-testing. Both serve the same goals, use the same techniques only the latter has wider use.

Place-making and place-testing are supplementary to one another.
