South Harbour Helsinki

Atelier LOIDL: The vastness of the harbour spaces are a luxury worth of preservation. A rhythm of precisely located spaces will be established, opening up for a sensual perception of the poetry of Wide. The robust simplicity suggested by the site generates places ready to adopt changing terms of use. The projectʻs spacial structure preserves the local characteristics and seeks for their sustainable development. To unfold a great variety of atmospheres and activities it provides a number of facilities robust enough to be modified through public participation procedures. With a design both concise and generous it plays on the poetic impact of the placeʻs wideness. Carefully proportioned spaces and chosen materials will enhance the sensual perception of the spirit of the place.
In cooperation with Wessendorf Architecture and Urban Planning and Grischa Leifheit Architect.

    The islands in the mouth of the bay make the water very gentle, and with it, the traffic too. Personally, I think it goes very well with the “poetry of Wide” as described above. The bridges over the innermost marinas are quite attractive. Seems very serene… (I hope the space doesn’t get too noisy!)
