A new square for Hoogeveen

Based on our recent master plan for the center of Hoogeveen, REDscape made a new design for the church square. The square becomes 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 space. Hoogeveen has the ambition to become the most child-friendly city in the Netherlands. The square is fully customizable and will be used weekly markets and larger cultural events. The lighting design was developed in collaboration with Phillips.
