REDEVELOPMENT OF TÖRNÄVÄ FORMER HOSPITAL AREA IN SEINÄJÖKI, FINLAND
Honourable mention, 2016
The new lively and vigorous city part of Törnävä is designed as a composition of playfully arranged city-blocks with the respect to the old hospital building complex and uneven terrain. Existing buildings form the ‘backbone’ of the new residential area and continue to play an important role in the distinguished historical milieu, while creating unique and attractive environment. The scale of designed city-blocks varies according to the suitable spot in the terrain and provides a diverse living environment for future inhabitants.
