Čufarjeva Street

Children help design a pedestrian and bike-friendly street

Due to the proximity of schools near Čufarjeva Street, almost two thousand children and teens walk through it every day. That is why it was important for Čufarjeva to become a safe and friendly street for pedestrians and bikers.

With small interventions and through a change of traffic regime, we limited car traffic and enabled children and adults to walk, play and rest on the street care-free. The street’s “furniture” was designed in collaboration with schoolchildren and high-school teens. The youngest ones helped us design interactive playground equipment through a series of workshops.

Čufarjeva Street project is an important contribution to reducing car traffic in the proximity of schools and kindergartens. It also encourages parents to take their children to school by bike or on foot.
