Carve is a design and engineering bureau that focuses on the planning and development of public space, particularly for use by children and young people. Our ideas are translated to playable public spaces, parks, play elements and furniture. Carve has years of experience in designing skateparks and unconventional public spaces aiming at youth. Clients are (local) governments, architects, landscape architects and manufacturers of playground equipment.
Since the establishment of the office in 1997 by Elger Blitz and Mark van der Eng the office has grown into a company with 12 employees. Carve is an office within which several design disciplines meet, from industrial design to civil engineering, architecture and landscape architecture.
