L Architects achieve First Prize in Porvoo

Our competition proposal 'Slottgården' ('Castle Garden') received first prize in a competitive tendering competition set up by the City of Porvoo. The focus of the competition was to develop Aleksanterinkaari, a curved plot on the edge of city center, as an energy efficient, innovative and ecologically sound new residential node in the expanding city. The 1,3 hectare site sits on the west side of River Porvoo, and will shortly feature 240 new apartments and 45 assisted-living apartments, a total of 17 000 gross m2 of residential construction. Our developer/ constructor partner in the competition was Pohjola Rakennus Oy.
