A diamond in the rough. The Europaplatz caters for both private and public use. Thoughtfully designed garden beds in ornamental circular shapes. Trees are hugged by perennial-grass mixtures appropriate to the location. The interplay of planting islands and furniture is highlighted by surface inlays of light-coloured, polished mastic asphalt. An open, urban square offers space for events and functions. The Europaplatz enables a connection between a new hotel and congress center, defining clear thoroughfares and passive spaces.
