Councillor Bram de Feijter of Oostburg in the extreme south-west of the country, wanted to give this small town, the regional and tourist centre of Zeeuws-Vlaanderen, a touch of class. The choice fell on Bakker because of his station square in Almere. The subdivision in Oostburg is premised in the ancient structure of Zeeuws-Vlaanderen which consisted of small islands and dykes. Oostburg exhibits remarkable differences in height accentuated by Bakker in the design. The market, for example, is set lower than the pool. The ugly post war reconstruction architecture made it necessary to lend distinction to the centre through rhythm, direction and colour. Circles of zebra crossings tie the different parts together. A small statue of a unicorn, a symbol from Oostburg's coat of arms, ahs been copied four times and set on tall masts marking the marketplace. The benches and waste baskets are in colours appropriate to the region: sandcoloured concrete and dark grey terrazzo. The grouping of the elements lends cohesion to the square. Friso Broeksema designed a new stall selling chips at the request of the owner.
