Vaskiluoto Refugium aims to have a net-positive impact on nature through a regenerative approach to urban development. We aim at a deep understanding of the natural systems already present in the area, facilitating the creation of environments where humans and other-than-humans can coexist harmoniously.
The proposal is grounded in three approaches that support regenerative urban development: 1) Regenerative Landscaping and Restoration of Ecosystems 2) Community Empowerment and Nature Stewardship, and 3) Modern Villas, Nature-based Solutions and Biomimicry.
The sea and the woodlands have long given a livelihood and an identity for the inhabitants of the Merenkurkku region. The new phase in Vaskiluoto’s future is to bring this symbiosis into a more lasting one.
