The overall mission of this study is to relaunch the Yuntolovo Project, stopped after the crisis of 2008, and to redefine the potentials of this area in order to define Yuntolovo Area as an attraction point for residential, public and tertiary uses with the creation of the necessary economical, technical and social infrastructure.
The project should set new standards of quality for urban space and give an impulse for the development of this area in long terms conditions.
In this way the work of CTTK is focused on the following subjects:
– The need that the new positioning of the project will acquire a complete and understandable concept for the consumer;
– The need to identify the target audience of the project;
– The way to situate the project stands out among other competitors.
The Final Layout of the updated Masterplan for Yuntolovo area embodies the key issues and opportunities previously described, incorporating the restrictions which arise at the level of infrastructure and local norms as well as the defined parameters of the approved PPT and is driven by the following principles:
EFFICIENCY AND COMPLEXITY – based on an efficient grid which had been worked out in the direction of a complex urban system the updated Master Plan Layout encounters issues such as the considerable greater variety of different uses, the interplay of building volumes and open space, questions of public and private use as well as different building types.
MOBILITY – The Road Network is organized in a three level grid that distributes the traffic hierarchically – leaving local streets only for internal traffic. In this way the updated Master Plan Layout allows the efficient mobility of all types of vehicles with a special focus on making the use of private cars for short and medium distance trips unnecessary and to enhance walkability.
NATURE – The updated Master Plan Layout conserves the existing greenery due to its importance in the natural landscape and takes advantage of the ecological and natural potential of the area especially the Yuntolovo Reserve, the existing Water Channel and the close proximity to the Finnish Gulf. The Public Space System had been classified and articulated in three different categories according their origins, scale and functions which as a whole will connect and give identity to the whole Area.
DIVERSITY – In order to achieve a fully equipped city which is able to satisfy the day by day need needs of the inhabitants the updated Master plan provides a system of District and Quartier Facilities distributed over the whole area in order to create a network of different services and facilities completely integrated in the Public Space System and the Road Network.
The overall aim of the Facade and Landscape Design for the Quartier 6&7 of the Yuntolovo Project was to to develop an original and unique Facade and Landscape Design in alignment with the project`s general main strategies defined in the Master Plan developed by CTTK in 2014.
In a first step the existing Masterplan had been reviewed in order to establish the overall criteria to improve mobility and the quality of the public space, while respecting the design criteria of the Residential buildings:
Adjustment of the Block sizes to avoid interruption of the pedestrian flow between Quartier 6 and 7 by emphasizing the pedestrian character of the Main Axe connecting both Quartiers.
Regarding the Façade the design – the residential blocks had been revised in order to avoid a series of setback to simplify construction and to give continuity to the Facades facing the Public Streets.
In a second step the main elements of the Public Space had been identified and hierarchically organized:
Level 1 – Areas enhancing walkability: the boulevard, the west garden and the meadows.
Level 2 – Public staying areas: Moonlight Plaza.
Level 3 – Private Areas: Semiprivate residential Courtyards.
Each one of those elements had been designed consequently in order to emphasize on its unique character.
Regarding the Facade Design the following principles had been implemented.The proposal aims to provide a variety of similar solutions in reference to the different situation of buildings which had been identified:
Green zones: associated with linear blocks.
Urban Avenue: associated with commercial blocks.
Internal space: associated with closed residential blocks.
