Inhabitat is covering an article on a deconstructed Citronen H Van into a parklet. I don’t need any more than that to be happy, do you?
San Francisco has been steadily adding to its fleet of parklets — mini parks that replace former parking spaces — and one of the most recent additions is a vintage Citroën H Van that has been deconstructed and reconfigured into a public seating area. The front and rear of the old truck remain intact, but the interior has been taken out and replaced with a 21-foot public seating area, complete with benches, a table, and several planters. The new parklet was designed by San Francisco-based design firm Rebar, and it’s located in front of the Rapha Cycle Club in San Francisco’s Marina District.
