PIHABITAT is a concept that introduces co-living in a Piha or mixed-use courtyard and sustainable circular production based on agriculture and multi-functional units.
The project is inspired by Anttila’s historic qualities and aim to enhance the characteristics of Finnishness present on site beside its productive background. The core of the design interventions is to introduce a manual for a new interpretation of Pihapiiri. Production is dynamically integrated into development of Anttila and the whole village works as a production entity.
The aim is to add conversation between nature and built environment and connect Anttila to the flow of people and global fabric of tourism by activating lakeside as a recreational hub. Participatory methods are also included in Anttila building processes.
