New Urban Centre of Veliko Tarnovo

The concept for the development of the territory of the new urban centre is aiming at creating a place with a spirit and a place that is socially and economically resilient. To achieve this, our global urban approach follows three leading guidelines: express identity, take advantage of the existing, allow flexibility.

The concept develops around six major interwoven strategies built upon the genetic code of the place: Volumes, Programme, Connectivity, Spaces, Phasing, and Sustainability. These strategies follow certain principles inspired by the Veliko Tarnovo urban morphology thus providing for the coherent connections of the territory with the city on different levels: spatial, visual, social, cultural, economic. The joint and wise implementation of the strategies would guarantee both a territory with a strong identity and a place that transforms and adapts to life.
