The future space of the center of Trešnjevka is designed as a series of connected public urban spaces which the neighborhood is currently lacking due to a mostly unplanned and fragmented urban structure. The proposed interventions place emphasis on creating new public spaces, increasing their interconnectedness and accessibility to pedestrians.

The greatest potential in creating a central space of Trešjevka lies in connecting the green and public areas from the “Stara Trešnjevka” park via the IXth Grammar School to the newly formed central square from west to east, and from the “Kralj Tomislav” elementary school and “Trešnjevka” kindergarten to the “Julije Klović” elementary school from north to south. This would allow the proposed central square and market to take on the role of a gathering place for commerce, communication, sport, leisure and education.

In addition to creating new public connective areas, an important aspect of the project is the articulation of the specific identity of the settlement in a sustainable way.

The identity of Trešnjevka's “green pockets” and private gardens is a recognizable and vital motif that is integrated throughout the design in the form of a pulsating green perimeter around the square, the accessible roof deck of the market with urban gardens and a park with overlapping green environments.

The creation of strong and accessible public connections is the basis for the sustainable development of this neighborhood and for all designed systems of green solutions at the level of individual buildings and public areas.
