Re-design of the promenade in the Postojna Cave Park

The concept of the promenade arrangement is inspired by the flow of water. Its design geometry forms the surface of the park and creates karst caves. The space is, therefore, fluid, creating meanders and gently changing directions. The wavy line creates space for expansion or a new platform, retreats to the building, creates a staircase or a ramp, and blends softly with its surroundings. The overall design also pays attention to physically handicapped, blind and partially sighted users, so it builds on textures, visual contrasts, smells, and accentuated sounds.
