WALDHOF PÄRNU LIVING AREA PLANNING COMPETITION 2006, SECOND PRIZE. 118 000m².
A 14 ha living environment for 1000 families on the south side of the Pärnu river. 7 different building types.The strategy is to grow the buildings in height and density in the direction of the river to 1)maximize the amount of sun shining into every apartment ,as the buildings do not shadow each other), and 2)maximize good views to the river and beyond, as proportionally the greatest number of families wuld be living in the up to 8 storey riverside apartments. For preserving green space most of the South Zone parking is under the buildings on the 1st floor. Parking in the Riverside Zone is all underground, yet above the flood plain (4m above water level) creating an interesting topography of living areas with `viewing platforms` and a lower beach promenade Leisure Zone with walking trails and bicycle paths. Team: Lembit Tork, Margus Soonets, Anu Lainus, Villu Scheler, Stina Seemel, Marju Tammik.
