The new residential area at the northern tip of Vaskiluoto has been designed around the themes of nature and community. The maritime character of the area has been reinforced by opening up views and pathways from the centre of the development to the preserved waterfront areas. Dense housing blocks and centralised parking solutions enable extensive green areas, which also support the existing natural identity of the area. Village street connects the different plots and creates an interesting and safe pedestrian link throughout the project area. The activities along the village street contribute to the sense of community in the area. At the edges of the new residential area, the scales of the buildings blend with the existing building stock and the façades of the buildings repeat the colours and materials of the historic buildings in the area.
