A new square for Hoogeveen

Based on our recent masterplan for the center of Hoogeveen, REDscape has created a new design for the church square. The square will become a focal point for activities in the main street. Two mirror pools, with mist and fountains, are located on the footprint of former buildings and serve as an informal play area. Hoogeveen has the ambition to become the most child-friendly city in the Netherlands. The square is fully adaptable and will be used for weekly markets and larger cultural events. The lighting design has been developed in collaboration with Philips.
