Envisioning the harbor front as an extension of the city center, ?Pargas Maritime Limestone Landscape? designed by the young Danish practice Schauman & Nordgren Architects has been named the winning entry of a waterfront masterplan competition by the City of Pargas, Finland.The proposal was selected for its ?thorough analysis of the city, its history, structure, character, potentials and challenge?, in response to the area?s development as a new residential hub and functional harbor. The competition introduced the notion of maintaining Pargas? dominant maritime identity, while simultaneously strengthening the city?s character with various urban elements, such as hotels, a beach, saunas, and offices.

?It will be the place in Pargas where you want to enjoy ice cream on the pier, the beautiful view, play tennis or take a dip in the sea after enjoying the heat of the sauna,? says co-founder Jonas Nordgren.
