The argumentation of the importance and spatial potentials of the degraded industrial sites inside urban systems and possibilities for their revitalisation without excluding past usage is in the thesis evolved on a case of the paper factory Vipap Videm Krško through the theoretical definitions of degraded and industrial architectural heritage sites as potential development categories, overview of successfully made realizations and trends and valuation of the case’s location. The main issues of the industrial site laying in the city center are its introversion, inaccessibility, psychological distance and disconnection with the other city parts and functions. Since there is still running factory on the major part of the studied area, which had great impact on the city’s growth and is also recognizable, symbolical and sentimental sign of the city, the thesis does not predict to close it, rather expose and treat as city’s quality with giving the guidelines for minimalizing it’s negative impacts to the surroundings, improving it’s visual appearance and integrating it into the city development plans with taking measures on the margins. Therefore, for the area that has been evolved in the thesis and for which is prepared the detailed landscape architectural plan has been chosen the abandoned and disused part of cellulose production. It is located on the most exposed northern part of the industrial complex. The revitalisation is based on the respectful attitude to the past use with adding new programs of mixed use and creating reach and meaningful spatial experience through the design of open, public, green Center of sports, culture and youth which is being presented as an important part of the wider city structure.
