MIXED USE QUARTERS IN CENTER OF VAASA
“Solsidan” presents a new type of solution for urban living. The project consists of two sites. The larger site called “Flickis” according to a turn-of-the century girl school includes four mixed-use buildings ranging from 4 to 6 floors and an old school building which will be converted into apartments and offices. The smaller site includes an old print house building and a new 9 floor mixed use tower. Apartments all open towards the sea and sunlight and most of them are connected to large roof terraces and gardens. The heights and forms of the buildings are carefully balanced to relate to the existing urban condition.
