Sustainable neighbourhood Nové Dolíky, Slaný

How can we create a modern, pedestrian-friendly urban environment for the 15-minute district, a new urban district with its own character that will be able to withstand the ever-increasing pace of change in human society? By creating a car-free district that emphasises pedestrian and bicycle transportation, by designing compact developments that create both a clearly defined public space and an attractive living environment for future residents.
The concept of access to public spaces is based on the fundamental idea of relocating cars to the outer edges of the development. All parking spaces are centralised in three traffic centres at the corners of the site and on the ground floor parking lots under the green courtyard, allowing for the implementation of blue-green infrastructure and the offer of a quality public space for the residents of Slaný and better connection to the agricultural park to the west. With all amenities within easy reach and recreational areas available, the neighbourhood will provide happiness and a conscious perception of future users.
The urban fabric that makes up this proposal has been carefully crafted to create a compact development with a variety of typologies and funding model options. At the same time, it is based on simplicity and elegance for sustainable and forward-looking construction methods along with an approach based on a relationship with nature.
