Rockanje – Renovation Town Hall Square

Due to the new master plan for the redevelopment of the city center of Rockanje, there was no longer a square in front of the town hall. The town hall was located right next to a busy road at the foot of a dike, and was only accessible via a sidewalk.  By moving the road in direction of the dike, a nice and curved square was created centrally located in front of the town hall. Due to the new square in combination with the the existing flight of steps, a new and more charming image was created. The espalier trees (pears) create an interesting ‘green wall’, which also blossoms nicely in spring. The square can be used for numerous purposes. Looking at its location and close connection to the historic town hall building, the decision was made to use light colored clinker bricks, several pieces of street furniture, and several solitary trees.
