Removing all shabby and unnecessary elements
The New Carpet
A fresh element that clarifies and unifies the street
Bringing in fresh air and a consistent look with new furniture and light. Taking care of the old trees and planting new.
The refurbished urban space attracts people and is ready to be enjoyed!
The previous spatial atmosphere on Manski pedestrian street emphasized a straight, corridor-like axis, which formed a long view and a narrow passageway. The narrow space was characterized with its division to sections, the street flow in the middle and street fronts. The paving on the street also emphasized an orthogonal division. When markets are held in the summer season, the street becomes extremely clustered and the passage even narrower.
To solve the clustered atmosphere and open up the corridor-like character, the plan organizes the space in a new way, avoiding symmetrical composition. Groups of trees placed at various points along the street emphasize the spatial rhythm, which appears green but is also spacious and full of light. A unifying surface material from facade to facade binds together the street space and strengthens its square-like atmosphere. A new surface motif gives the walking street a recognizable and durable background.
