DEDAKKAS, HAARLEMDancing trees on the terrace with the best view in Haarlem

When initiator Dennis enjoyed a drink at sunset on the roof of an old parking garage in downtown Haarlem, he envisioned a vibrant restaurant terrace on this valuable unused space. A vision quite similar to ours, which formed the basis of our collaboration. End of 2020, we've placed 4 Urban Trees on the roof terrace of restaurant DeDAKKAS, with a stunning view on the historical city centre of Haarlem. 

Wind can be challenging here, as Haarlem is close to the coast. On stormy days, our trees dance to the wind, celebrating the good vibes on this exciting location in the middle of Haarlem.
