Dokkum Market Square

On the 22nd of Februari the renewed market square of Dokkum, including the ice fountain by Birthe Leemeijer was opened. HOSPER made the design for the square in collaboration with the Mienskipkommisje, Enno Zuidema and Birthe Leemeijer.

The starting point for the desing was an integral plan in which the many historical elements of this place come into their own and form a free space for all kinds of activities. The square, as the highest point of Dokkum mound, was restored and made visible as a spatial experience.

The contours of the former abbey church have been incorporated on the square. The large light gray-yellow granite tiles refer to the underground graves and the mound.
