Plain Sailing

“Plain sailing” sets out to introduce the Eastern Helsinki archipelago to the inhabitants of the surrounding areas without endangering the environmental and cultural values of the sites. The proposal provides road marks for a design process, the takes existing as the starting point, developing solutions to support it. The outcome is a set of measures from the conceptual and areal scale to the level of architectural detail. Natural areas will be maximized, historic villas and gardens restored, and changes and additions made only where they are necessary. Together with a modular architectural concept, the proposed measures form a toolkit, to be implemented one step at a time, responsive to the effects and even surprising developments that may arise.
