Model Driven Engineering based on the European Smart Grid Architecture Model (SGAM) has proven to be a bestpractice approach in realizing complex Smart Grid projects. In this paper, an extension of this approach towards Smart City Systems is proposed. It is argued that with the complexity of the involved domains, each application domain should be represented in an individual Application Domain Cube (ADC), similar in structure to the SGAM, but with dimensions applicable to the domain. A mechanism is added to address interrelations between application domains in Smart Cities. The proposed approach is illustrated by an example covering different domains.
