The masterplan area Smartinska Partnership, located between the city center, the central passenger terminal and the highway ring, offers a unique opportunity to define the future identity of the city. On 230 ha, the masterplan scenario “government city” envisions a possible 1.5 million sqm built over the next 25 years with the aim of complementing the existing city center with a new center with all urban amenities turning Ljubljana into a true capital for the 21st century.

The masterplan integrates spatial layout, traffic, landscape and town planning with financial strategy and measures for sustainability to determine the planning guidelines and determinants of future development. These are aimed at the transformation of the predominantly introverted, closed and environmentally burdening urban area of former industrial and manufacturing complexes and logistics terminals into a vital, intensive and programmatically rich urban place.

IBV Hüsler defined the guidelines for the development of the transport system according to "Multimobility Concept", which should be able to solve the contradictions between needed capacity, transport means and urban attractiveness according to the principle of “global accessibility”. This take into account not only the motorised private traffic, but a much more complex and potentially efficient system of pedestrians (and other non motorised transport means), public transport and private cars
