Our intervention consists of defining a strategy for the current expansion of Tallinn.
We propose an extension of the public transportation system and the creation of a road infrastructure, based on a grid system. This grid would serve a double function: it would make it possible to control the entire area, and to organize the currently disparate site. Our goal is to bring a coherent statute to the area, by imposing a new order.
Along the waterfront, we propose a landscaping treatment sensitive to the existing site, which would provide open space and views. To the south, the main axis of the city would be widened to become the backbone of the project. Our urban design theory asserts the importance of restoring the connection between built architecture and the environment. Therefore, the proposed buildings are porous, defining a new urban density and introducing a new urban scale into the city fabric.
We are developing diverse types of the same city block, while ensuring satisfactory enclosure. Placed along the edge of the plot, individual houses (based on traditional Estonian homes), flats, and housing blocks are assembled in such a way as to create views of the ocean.
