The square – located between Tech Tower, Luchtruim, Valid and Center Court – is getting a major transformation. The design for this is ready and the implementation is currently being prepared by a construction team. The execution will start at the beginning of 2023. Curious about what it will look like?
Next year, an oasis of green will arise between the iconic buildings of Flight Forum. The new square will become the cozy heart of Flight Forum, where office workers and future residents can sit outside and meet each other. The elevated oval shape with trees, grasses and plants creates an intimate atmosphere on the 5000m2 square. Diagonal paths run through the greenery and lead to the entrances of the buildings. During breaks, one can relax on one of the round poufs in the shelter and abundance of greenery or on the steps around the oval. The special steel elements – which function as a standing table at the highest point due to the height difference of the square, and as a bench at the lowest point – will be real eye-catchers. There is also ample space to organize an event or a company drinks. The lighting on the square provides practical accessibility, safety and an extra warm and pleasant atmosphere.
A well-designed square that meets the high ambitions of Flight Forum and fits within the budget takes time. We are therefore extremely happy that we have managed to design a square that allows for nature experience, relaxation and meeting, and fits the urban quality of Flight Forum.
“The new square will be the calling card of Flight Forum and the central meeting place for employees and residents,” says Jesse Poppema, Program Manager Green Transition. “The goal was to create a green place where people feel good and like to stay. This design has succeeded in that. The appearance of the new square fits the special urban quality of Flight Forum. You will see this reflected in the choice of greenery and materials. I am really looking forward to the result.”Jesse Poppema
The square is one of the projects within Eindhoven Airport District that will create a green and lively heart. It is part of a bustling Airport Boulevard that all residents and visitors of Eindhoven Airport District can use.
From next week, the construction team will start working on the technical elaboration of the design. The final design will be ready in December and the implementation can start at the beginning of 2023. Owners and users will be informed in a timely manner about the work and any inconvenience.
