The influence of networks on designing the town centre of Domžale
Domžale is a town without a historic core. It transformed by integrating four former independent vilaages: Stoba, Štude, Upper and Lower Domžale. After joining with the settlements Depala vas and Šentpavel it became a town. The problems and possibilities of designing the town centre of Domžale are not limited to its centre, but are connected to the position of Domžale within the urban conurbation of the Ljubjana metropolitan region. In the case of Domžale intervention in the wider and closer area should be based on complementarity that increase the potentials of the town and its identity, rather than competitiveness. In the design, planning and execution of redesigning the town centre at least three spatial networks have to be examined beforehand: the road network, the network of public transport and the network of programmes.
