KCAP Architects & Planners has recently won a shared first place title in the Eteläpuisto Park competition for the city of Tampere, Finland. The competition brief specified that entries were required to create an “urban residential area and provide for programs suitable for the city structure and for the landscape.” Recreational access to the nearby lake shore was required, as was enabling access to Tampere’s Hämeenpuisto Esplanade. KCAP’s residential park proposal was chosen unanimously by the competition jury from six total entries.

Titled “Sunny Side of the City,” KCAP’s design incorporates lakefront apartment complexes in the setting of a city park. Each residential building has a view of the lake, and access to the park’s facilities at the water’s edge, which include a designated lakeshore swimming area. As the architects state: “The lake side in connection with the city acts as a catalyst for the development of the whole city and the wider region.”
