We discuss a technique for the approximation of the Poisson problem under mixed boundary conditions in spaces of piece-wise constant functions. The method adopts ideas from the theory of $\Gamma$-convergence as a guideline. Some applications are considered and numerical evaluation of the convergence rate is discussed.
