Ede Marktplein

A green square on top of a parking garage with space for an accumulation of functions: a meeting place with green gardens, terraces, market, play areas and space for events.

The wishes of residents formed the basis for the design of the new Market Square. HOSPER has translated these wishes, in combination with tight preconditions (such as those for the market and parking garage) into a design based on a contemporary interpretation of the historic leafy ‘overtuin' gardens.

The open square floor for the market and events is maintained, but the sheltered green ‘overtuin' gardens also provide space for terraces and play areas. Small floor-fountaines form a central element on the square. In addition, the plantation contributes to a pleasant living climate, reduces heat stress and increases the habitat for birds and insects.
