Opening Industrieplein Hengelo

The new design of Buro Lubbers for the “Industrieplein” at the back of Hengelo station transforms the place from a grey and desolate square into an attractive green space. The square now accommodates for various users and functions. In the center, a skatepark is located, surrounded by biodiverse butterfly- and bee-attracting greenery. The old stream has been made visible again, partially covered by a grid that shows the history of the Industrieplein. With bicycle parking, a taxi stand, Kiss&Ride parking spaces, and traversing walking routes the square has become a new junction next to the station. A green connector in the city.
