The building masses delimiting the main streets and the outer edges form an urban, contained street space between the new blocks and shield the inner spaces from noise. On the block’s inside will be a more free-form, meandering and mesh-like spaces – a suburban park.
In the competition area, the four yards are connected by an internal pedestrian paths. All theyards are a part of one common courtyard space and each is themed differently. Functionswork better when centralised and concentrated in one place than when they are diffused and spread all over. On top of it, sharing activities engenders and promotes community spirit and socialising.
The suburban park, which will form the core of the area, will be connected to other parks and to the center of the area by light traffic connections. This is the way a closed-off block takes on a new form in suburban construction. On one hand, a limited, urban urban space will be created, mainly along the public transport backbone network, and on the other hand, a new type of vision of suburban parks will arise – that of the vital tissue that connects the buildings into one coherent whole.
