Walter Plants Square

Philipsburg, Sint Maarten

Walter Plants Square

The Walter Plantz Square is located in Philipsburg, Sint Maarten, in one line with the pier and right-angled with the Boardwalk. The Square forms a connection between the Boardwalk and Front Street.

The design not only consists the public space and the buildings but also the interior of the units. This total design gives the Walter Plantz Square its unique character.

Palm trees aligned at both sides of the central axis provide the Square with needed shadow under the burning Caribbean sun. The fountain brings extra coolness.

The 8 little buildings feature traditionally Sint Maarten details. Such as the ginger bread along the eaves, and the “potdekselen” and “houten rabat” which is the wooden exterior wall finish. The colorful paintwork fits the traditional way of painting.

The Square serves as a meeting place for the local people and as a start point for the cruise passengers that arrive by water taxi on the pier. When the sun set the many lights make the Walter Plantz Square bathe in light and so it is the perfect place for gatherings and events.
