The intention of this visual frame is to define the streets Jakoministraße and Klosterwiesgasse in order to mark them as a significant design area with a visible and positive identity.

The entrance to the Jakomini district is clearly recognized by the north and south street endings. The streets themselves are revamped leaving them with a fresh inviting look for visitors to explore.

The running track as presented in the project “Ready. Steady. Go!” was applied in September 2010. It attracts attention to the changes in the quarter and will make people stop and absorb the newly created atmosphere.

A total of 750 meters or 4600 square meters along the streets and pavements around the block are coloured in red, the lines separating the tracks are grey.
