Green design and electronics technology can be integrated for enhancing our living environments and social interaction in the society. We present a novel design example, called the "Prachtpaal", for the Bennekel district in the city of Eindhoven, the Netherlands. The design of an interactive green street facility is proposed and demonstrated by using light dependent sensors and actuators. The growth of the green plants is indicated with the special implementation of light dependent sensors and colourful lights, so that people are stimulated in a more responsible way to take care of the plants and communicate with each other. Adding the unique green design in Bennekel district has potential to improve the social cohesion and living quality of the neighbourhood.
