There will be more woonerfs in Tri-City

The planned scale of street reconstruction in Dolny Sopot

From the Netherlands to Poland. How to name woonerf in Polish?

Woonerfy is a form of public space formation that has occupied European cities in recent years. It was first used in the Netherlands in the 1970s, where the word “woonerf” in Dutch means “the street to live in”.

In Poland, the first woonerf conference was held in 2014 in ód, and in Tri-City – In Gdynia, in the Mujahideen. Ibrahim in 2019

Significantly both of them Investments – In Lodz and Gdynia – it was implemented as part of the civilian budget, because the authorities lacked the political courage to introduce a form of development in which drivers ’needs would not be a priority in the division of space.

There is still no Polish equivalent for “woonerf”, and the often quoted (also in comments on our website) “area of ​​residence” matches only slightly the typical woonerf assumptions, as there is no physical partitioning of the road and sidewalks.

Furthermore, the woonerf space should primarily be designed with the needs of pedestrians in mind, keeping in mind the elements of street furniture and green spaces, which are not covered by “residence area” as a definition of traffic regulation.

In Lodz, attempts were made to use the term “urban courtyard”, which, however, did not always correspond to the character of the surrounding buildings, the best example being Sopot with its apartment buildings, rather than the compact complex of apartment buildings with deep courtyards typical of central Lodz.
