Hillegon – Henri Dunantplein

In 2002 Hollandschap was asked to develop a master plan for the town center of Hillegom.  Both the “Hoofdstraat” and the “Henri Dunantplein” needed to be developed in the master plan. Through intensive cooperation with the local inhabitants and entrepreneurs, we looked for the best way to deal with the project area. Finally the site survey resulted in a change in driving directions, a limitation in parking facilities, and a new Parish Green structure plan. By using high end materials the area has undergone a “facelift”, which resulted in an improved entrepreneur “climate”. During the first realization phase the Hoofdstraat has been completed. Very soon the planning of the Henry Dunantplein will start. This will be an intensive renovation, where an underground parking will be constructed. Reconstruction will also take place on ground level.
