REVITALIZATION OF SOFIA EMBANKMENT
area: 8.8 hectares
length: 0.9 km
program: landscaping of the city embankment, together with LLC «Strelka KB»
It is proposed to create a single pedestrian promenade - a pedestrian route, on which there are five zones with different functional purposes. As the main transit passes through these thematic zones, the road itself is also subject to changes and the influence of these zones.
The planning structure of the project was prompted by the street grid that existed from the Middle Ages to the beginning of the 20th century.
The improvement design project is based on a thorough analysis and identification of the main problems and prerequisites for the development of the territory of Sofia embankment. The main principle of the work was the discovery of strong «undisclosed» sides in the degraded territory and the search for an appropriate, but modern project proposal that respects the «memory of the place».
The implementation of all the measures laid down in the concept will not only make the territory of Sofia embankment one of the popular recreational places in the city, but will also give impetus to the development of adjacent territories.
The concept of Sofia embankment landscaping included solutions to several fundamental problems: creating a comfortable environment to attract citizens, ensuring year-round use of the territory, preserving and articulating the unique landscape identity of the place.
