Halmstad appears to be a divided city. The main divisions drag from north to south due to river Nissan and the railroad tracks. However, also the project site itself is tattered in pieces. Public spaces are interrupted by traffic.
The proposal of 'Walking Halmstad' aims to provide a variety of interventions that create a continuous urban tissue and give priority to pedestrians and bikes. The new walkable area encloses the old city center at stora torget, an extended shopping street along Fredsgatan, a new square with railway crossing and amphitheater, a promenade along an exciting hybrid building that combines both parking and spaces for local businesses, Stationparken with a market hall in the old station building, and finally the new travel center with freshly activated Studentparken.
