The proposal for the Östhammar site is based on the construction of a three dimension grid capable to adapt to the different urban conditions and limits of the proyect area, residential neighborhood,port area,parks,roads and walkway…
3 scale strategies organizes the projec,reescaling the Baltic seaside geometric pattern offers new urban lifesyle posibilities, where the shoreline becomes a continous programatic line, and buildings emerges offering spaces capable to adapt to the programme activities requirements.
The continuous and undulating surface generates urban-natural rooms that adaptates to the inhabitant scale adapted to new future requirements. Buildings appeares as part as an urban multiuse landscape, where the different programmes(indoorandoutdoor)overlap in time and place.The system also conect the public space as an extension of the green structure and soft mobility network,attending too for good accesibility for cars and public transport.
The climatic changes throughout the year offer achanging use of outdoor surfaces providing good conditions for social life and cultural experiences for all demographics, programs also are organized in two levels and in the internal proyect voids,their location depends on the water physicalstate liquid . frozen .steam. this condition rules the way surfaces should be used.
