- Project Details:
The project in Savsko naselje was initiated by the Municipality of Ljubljana in 2013. Organized and spontaneous community meetings were held to define a programme for regeneration of the neighbourhood on several levels including bottom-up spatial planning and a traffic plan for the neighbourhood. A bottom-up spatial vision for public spaces was prepared which combined proposals and initiatives for public spaces of Savsko naselje such as activities in urban gardens. A community center was also established which houses non-profit activities, and acts as a “Library of Things” where residents can borrow a variety of items for sports, play, household or travel.
