The main aim of this study is to create a quality space in the central part of the Letňany district. The area around the Tupolevova bus stop is considered as a natural central point created by the crossing of main directions to the shopping center, the sport center and others. The proposal reduces the traffic load and creates a recreational space with seasonal opportunities for local markets. Main pedestrian routes follow existing pedestrian directions. The proposal includes also underground containers for the waste recycling. The pavement of the main space is designed from granite cobbles complemented with wooden elements for sitting and trees integrated into the pavement.
