A new impulse for Hoogeveen
In September, REDscape’s vision for the revitilisation of Hoogeveen’s town centre public realm, including its main shopping street (3ha) was awarded the winning commission. The commission includes a masterplan for the town centre and redesign of its main street. Hoogeveen is a primary shopping destination in Drenthe which attracts shoppers and tourists from the wider region. The centre is set become compacter and to offer more atmosphere, experience and enjoyment. The design is to be underpinned by sustainable principles, making it more robust for future climatic conditions. Hoogeveen also aims to become the country’s most child friendly town centre.
