location Rijeka, CRO

The new Delta Area of Rijeka is an extensive masterplan area that will fill the existing void between the dense urban centre and the industrial harbour zone. The inspiration of the design comes from traditional small harbour cities along the Adriatic with its narrow alleys and intimate public spaces and contemporary ideas of various heights, densities, boulevards and open space. It is structured with a ring street and a diagonal boulevard that cuts through the ring. The inner zone reflects the traditional harbour city structure and the boulevard the ring street and the open spaces along the harbour create a lively urban cityscape at the water with a waterfront theatre, convention center, harbour hotel and a modern marina with shops and restaurants.
