DGJ Landscapes designed a winning competition proposal for the former mini-golf terrain in Westbroekpark. Our team been selected from 30 participants to develop the site for at least 15 years, contributing to a very special place in one of the most beautiful parks in The Hague. Our submission consisted of a daytime restaurant in a greenhouse, combined with vegetable and scent gardens in a park-like setting where there is space for leisure, education and workshops. Our design for both the integration of our park in the Westbroekpark, the greenhouse and the gardens, and in addition a comprehensive businessplan was realised by Tiessens Development under the new name of Greens.
The Restaurant serves dishes with ingredients of the garden. The later is plantet by the foundation "Mens en Tuin": it offered a day activity for up to 10 people in psychiatric care with professional help and integrates up to 4 refugees in the midst of The Hagues International Zone.
