Synthesis of the case study

The Velenje “Promenada” is an important city space and a vital city thoroughfare. Its tasks are to supply the city with the missing programmes and to help it reclaim its original character of a "town in a park". The pedestrian zone extends from a parking garage, before weaving its way through the existing urban fabric. As the path twists around the surrounding buildings, it gives rise to larger contained spaces. Moreover, by narrowing a bridge and placing it off the former axis, a space has been recovered for an amphitheatre, which slopes down towards the banks of the river. Consequently, this nexus has became a hub of activity, with the water once again forming a prominent part of the city.
