The Living Quarters of Porvoo is based on a participatory workshop followed by a feasibility study on how to transform the centre of Porvoo into a thriving urban environment.
The project reorganises a large empty space, today used for parking, and introduces a new type of urban living with social meeting places to activate the area. A new streetscape for soft mobility improves connectivity. Apartments are integrated with roof- and allotment gardens, and the green environment introduces new common arenas for social interaction and sharing.
The project is a collaboration with Uusi Kaupunki collective.
