Design of public space
Sweco designs public spaces both within and outside of cities and municipalities: from parks, squares and streets to integrated visions about the open space in a whole district or center. In so doing, we accompany the entire process from analysis & vision through to implementation.
Our public spaces give a physical form and manifestation to our society. They are places where a large share of public life goes on and people meet one another, hence it is extremely important to assume responsibility for the identity, character and appearance of our parks, squares, and streets and their significance in our collective memory. They are precisely where a healthy social fabric can grow that binds communities together.
We therefore pay careful attention to the specificity and the history of the place and integrate into each project the climate-adaptive measures that are necessary in order to create a pleasant and healthy living environment. The design process demands a respectful approach which is closely linked to the expectations and values of residents, visitors and users.
BUUR Part of Sweco is the leading multidisciplinary research, planning and design team within Sweco Belgium. Together we translate the joint ambition ‘Transforming Society Together’ into concrete visions and projects for the spatial transition.
