1st and 2nd place in Dutch Green Cities Award 2023


We are happy to share that our entry for the city of Utrecht is winner of the Dutch edition of the European Green Cities Award!
A win made all the more wonderful by the second place for Hengelo, based on our design of the redevelopment of the city centre.

Following our continuous and productive collaboration with both municipalities, greenery and water are returning to the city centres.

In recent decades, Utrecht has made a structural choice to reduce motorised traffic and transform the freed-up space into parks and places for recreation, further improving the quality of life. Our selected projects Catharijnesingel, Oosterspoorbaan Park and Croeselaan embody that development. Catharijnesingel was spotlighted in this respect: here we brought nature into the heart of the city, forming a green link between the old and the new city.

Hengelo has celebrated delivery of the renewed Marktplein, following transformation of several other central streets. The introduction of diverse planting and water management solutions is shaping the public space where people now love to spend time.

We are grateful for this acknowledgement and cannot wait to continue our work on attractive green public spaces that improve slow mobility routes and create resilient structures adapting urban environments to climate change!
