"The entry takes into consideration the urban context and its cultural and historical values and the block masses feel especially “Helsinki-like”."  — Jury

Shared 1st place in an open international ideas competition seeking direction for developing the core of Helsinki.

The new construction in South Harbour area aims to emphasize the role of Market Square in the middle of historical Helsinki. The new art museum, hotel, cafes and restaurants draw people into the area throughout the year.

The sales areas on the Market Square are organized into clear quarters by moving the parking spaces and the structures of water traffic outside the square.

The new art museum, situated in the place of Kanavaterminaali, and the new office block next to Tähtitorninmäki enclose a square like space leaving the big ships outside.
