MICROLOCATION “URBAN POCKET” KOVILJ
Within the project “European Capital of Culture” in Novi Sad, arranging the micro-location of the urban pocket located in the centre of Kovilj was conducted – at the Trg Oslobođenja Square, which leans on the central street in the settlement, Laze Kostića Street. In the scope of the arrangement of this area, the ground floor unit within the Square complex was realized, as well as a market with a “drive-through” concept, including 6 fixed and 19 folding market stalls. The existing green surfaces were horticulturally arranged, and the entire area was enriched with new urban furniture (benches, waste baskets, bicycle holders, and protective poles). The area was adequately lit by placing 14 poles for decorative and 15 poles for functional public lighting. Surrounding roads were reconstructed using cobblestone, pedestrian paths were created, and the park fountain was innovated. In front of the central library building, the plateau was paved and a large dining table with benches were installed on it, as well as a sculpture “Stork’s Nest”, as a symbol of Kovilj settlement.
