This project was commissioned by Municipality of Jakovo, small municipality at the outskirts of Belgrade. 

The project includes the detailed design and construction of a central square with traffic network and public areas nearby. Basically, this urban design project covers segments of two large profile streets and their junction as the central point. The surrounding buildings are typical provincial housing units and a church- positioned diagonally from the main square. The central square is designed as a comfortable and pleasant gathering place for the local residents. The square accommodates seating, water features, plants and it is beautifully lit at night.

The principles are included in the overall space design as distinct, formal design elements. Detectable warning paver, tactile pavers and accessible routes are integrated in pavement. 

The materials and colors used in the space design are carefully tuned and adapted to the site. Dominant material for pavement in the square is light grey stone cut with strong geometrical strokes of dark gray and yellow. LED lighting inlayed in pavement create interesting atmosphere and activate this space at night.
