Marchew NEW District

Project description

The main idea of the design proposal is to create a user friendly environment externally and internally by developing solutions suited primarily for human scale. Design guidelines used in the project were derived from the historical car factory aesthetics and the nearby railroad industrial atmosphere. Special attention is given to public and private outdoor spaces to create a vibrant social environment as well as adaptive reuse of existing volumes such as the old factory and metal hangar.
