Renovation market & harbour

The attractive historic harbour & market make Brouwershaven a top destination for the many recreational sailboats that navigate the Grevelingen Lake. The fact that this town is a protected cityscape and that harbour & market together are lined with over 50 national monuments (+ a statue) make Brouwershaven for many  “The most beautiful town at the Grevelingen”.

Felixx Landscape Architects, commissioned by the municipality and together with the town council, worked out the town council’s plan for the renovation of public space of market square and harbour area of Brouwershaven. The preliminary design was developed into a final design layout plan, and was delivered at the end of March 2021. This layout plan incorporated as many of the original proposals as possible.

The cooperation of municipality and town council together with entrepreneurs and residents of Brouwershaven was essential in developing the plans for the final design. For example, there were discussions with various entrepreneurs around the market square, about the possibilities for terraces and displays. Based on this input and comments, Felixx has further developed the preliminary design into a final design in which materials and design are further detailed.

Accessibility & Parking

Input from residents and entrepreneurs was used to create a realistic traffic plan with respect for history. The number of parking spaces was reduced in favour of more green and recreation, while retractable bollards at the Zuiddijkstraat ensure (flexible) access to the square during events. The town council and Brouwershaven’s Culture & Heritage Foundation contributed to the design of the paving around the square. For instance: by incorporating rails in the pavement, the historic Tramline Zijpe - Burgh is once again visible.

Participatory Process

Honouring the cultural heritage of Brouwershaven as the attractive destination for tourism, and strengthening quality, social cohesion, cultural  & economic growth for town and residents was the challenge. With the final design of  the public space, all parties are now showing that Brouwershaven is well prepared for the future and at the same time will remain “The most beautiful town at the Grevelingen.”
