Pruukinranta Housing Fair

The project developed for the City of Seinäjoki to create a new residential area close to the Kyrkösjärvi lake in Seinäjoki. The area is rich in environmental features which OOPEAA´s design took well into consideration in all the phases of the project. The assignment indeed involved a phase of general masterplanning, a more detailed planning and guidelines phase for the area used in 2016 by the Seinäjoki Housing Fair in 2016, and the landscape design of the lake-side path and sport / free-time facilities, later designed in detail. One of these facilities is the beautiful Periscope Tower, completed in summer 2016.

The landscaping defines the structure of the new settlement, adapting the residential areas to the movements of the natural environment.
