Mirove Square in Dobris – Phase 1
Mirove Square is the main public square in Dobris and although at the heart of the town, it is partly dominated by heavy traffic. Feilden+Mawson won the public design competition in 2007 with the concept of the whole urban area of Mirove Square which gradually evolved to an urban-transport vision for the wider town centre. Phase 1, which was completed in 2012, is part of the overall project.
The square is fitted with contemporary urban furniture of steel combined with durable wood. A completely new concept of lighting allows for setting of lower lamps which corresponds to the scale of the surrounding buildings. Direct lights are proposed to brighten the lower part of the adjacent buildings which clearly defines the organic shape of Mirove Square at night.
