Koivusaari International Idea Competition

Koivusaari is an island between Helsinki and Espoo in Finland. It is well known for its harbour and boat storage. The aim of our competition proposal was to create a coherent masterplan that mediates two sides of the area cut by the highway coming through. We linked the housing north-side with the commercial south-side by introducing common recreational area in the form of the lake underneath the heavy traffic.
