Through a citizens’ dialogue, it emerged that the public wanted to transform the rough and boring setting into a central and active square that would attract many visitors, both young and old. The result was a square characterized by a smaller playground, boules court and a play fountain as well as a large open area for large events. On the periphery, a pair of playful wooden furniture was built that invites visitors to play and perform spontaneous performances.
To save space on the useful square surface, one of these wooden plinths was used to house the pumping plant to the water fountain. White Arkitekter worked closely with the client and the electrical consultant to ensure that all media and technology necessary for various events were integrated into the design. These facilities were carefully placed to not interfere with the open spaces of the square.
