The subject matter of the study is Wajdeloty Street in the centre of district Gdańsk Wrzeszcz, in the area of the historical development of the Old Wrzeszcz. The design covers Wajdeloty Street from Kilińskiego Street to Waryńskiego Street, including Grażyny, Wallenroda, and Aldony streets on the section from Wajdeloty Street to Strzyża stream.
The design’s main objective is to restore the historical character of Wajdeloty Street. This is why substantial traffic limitation and alleviation have been assumed, with a lower number of parking places in place. By introducing one-way traffic and narrowing the roadway, the sidewalks could be widened. In consequence on both sides of the street there have occurred comfortable pedestrian precincts. Pavements are designed as a line of granite slabs in the middle which are highlighted by sett strips on their both sides. Along buildings’ facades, sett offsets have been designed to protect the facades from precipitation. Architectural details have been also designed, such as benches, waste bins, bicycle racks, posts, road bollards, stairs, fences, a street spring, and stylised lanterns. Greenery and plants constitute an important element too, ensuring aesthetic, (and above all) climatic and sanitary functions.
Total length of reconstructed streets: ~700m
