Haven Kakumäe Ltd. arranged an international invitational competition to develop Kakumäe district's marina in Tallinn. The competition sought to find a solution that would merge the diverse services of the marina and the existing structures and create a natural and attractive area.
L Architects were awarded with the third price with its proposal "Antikythera". The competition entry got its name from an ancient clock mechanism found in the outskirts of a Greek seaport. The device was used to predict the movement of astronomical objects.
In our proposal residential and service buildings surround the marina and therefore create a safe haven. The seaside boulevard and the track surrounding the seaport are creating pedestrian-friendly urban space in the new heart of Kakumäe. Antikythera introduces a new way of living next to the waterfront, this concept literally brings boating to your front door.
