Revitalization of the outskirts of historical Trenčín

A new public space of main streets in the modern suburb of the historical city was designed respecting the history of the locality. Lines of attractive and sustainable interventions defined new meeting and relaxation places. New squares were formed with interactive areas, a park, city avenues, relaxation corners as well as pop-up roof of a large building of the former garrison club.

Revitalized and safe profile of major streets with public street lights and new street furniture provide enough space for active parterre operation, occasional markets and summer restaurant and café terraces. In the outskirts, we designed well-arranged information system, several stages for cultural and social events, a new bike path in the entire area and a new public transport stop. We let the interesting history of the place shine especially on two places. The main Divadelní (Theatre) square in the south of the area is intersected with a line of uncovered historical finds as an inseparable part of our urban intention. In the north part of the outskirts, near the municipality office building with a marriage hall, accessible remains of the historical fortification were incorporated in the new small square. Varied microclimates of different outskirts parts were united into one dynamic unit based on materials on walking areas and designed outdoor furniture, fully-grown trees and interactive water elements.
