Urban Planning project "Sports and recreation center Mračaj" Jajce

For the purpose of transformation and improvement of the space of the “Sports and Recreation Center Mračaj” in the municipality of Jajce, during the period 2014-2016 IPSA Institute has prepared a detailed planning document at the level of an urban project.
The scope is specific for its position in the flow system of the Pliva River. The scope divided by the river Pliva has certain obstacles, which are reflected in the difficult formation of mutual connections between organized contents and the limitation of pedestrian flows. The advantages of such morphological frameworks are reflected in the presence of water as an element that has a significant contribution in terms of completing the ambience and landscape as an important and integral element of the whole.

The urban plan defines the basic spatial conditions for the formation of a sports and recreation center within the Mračaj sports zone. The new spatial structures are organized into two separate units: a sports center on the left bank and a football stadium with stands on the right bank.

The urban concept is based on:

  • Formation of sports content zones that allow unhindered use independently of each other (football stadium with bleachers and sports center with swimming pools).
  • Forming a physical and functional connection between the contents that are being developed on the two banks of the river (pedestrian-vehicle bridge).
  • Possibilities of spatial connection (opening) of the complex to the environment, but also enabling the independent functioning of some of its structures
  • Affirmation and revitalization of the coastal area of the Pliva River by laying out pedestrian and bicycle paths, as well as rest areas with adequate urban furniture.
