A&A Architects Won First Prize – “Golden Visar” in the Competition for “Secondary City Centre – Sofia Central Train Station Zone”

A &A architects were awarded the First Prize – “Golden Vizar” in the competition for "Secondary City Centre - Sofia Central Train Station Zone", organised by VIZAR Foundation and Sofia Municipality.

The project proposes a radical change in the functioning of the urban environment, giving priority to people instead of cars.

The concept proposes the development of an appropriate architectural and urban environment in order to enliven the space 24 hours a day - 7 days a week. Moreover, establishment of vital cultural and recreational facilities and vast public spaces will further strengthen the programme.

The project takes advantage of the picturesque views of the city and Vitosha Mountain, the traditional city block structure of the centre and the heritage of modernism from the second half of the 20th century.

These ideas in the project were highly appreciated by the prestigious international jury and the Chief Architect of Sofia.

The competition gives hope for the revival of the northern regions of Sofia.

The award-winning project can become a reality with the joint efforts of municipality, business and the citizens.
