The Velenje “Promenada” is an important city space and a vital city thoroughfare. It is one of the key axes of the city centre, which is why it cannot be considered separately from the other city space within the context of the planned renovation. The intervention into the space must naturally be designed locally, in a way that allows an execution in stages, as provisioned in the project’s budget. Still, it makes sense to outline the vision of the revitalization of the entire city centre; in this way, the spatial intervention is given a wider framework, which will ensure an informed sitting into the present and future city space.Velenje is a special city. As new post-war town, its design was based on the Modernist ideal of the garden city and as such, it is unique in the Slovene space. This special characteristic is to be, first of all, retained; it is then to be rid of unnecessary and undesirable elements that have accrued through time; finally, it needs to be upgraded according to the needs of contemporary life. The city centre must be enhanced with the programmes it is missing, instilling more life into it. We have every possibility to accomplish this: the city centre is closed for traffic, which comparable cities are yet to achieve; and the city’s airy design offers sufficient available surfaces to accommodate additional programme.What, then, is needed for the city centre to be revitalized? People! Only people as active users of the space can infuse the city with the energy necessary for its rebirth. And how to go about bringing more people into the city?
