Located in Lahti, Finland, Rantakartano Master Plan was designed by K2S Architects Ltd. In this urban plan that was developed in close cooperation with the city of Lahti, a site currently used as a bus station and parking area is transformed into a mixed use area featuring housing, commercial and public functions including an art museum. K2S’s design refers to the grid structure of the city centre, but the blocks are shaped more freely. Between the three storeys high volumes, a square-like pedestrian street forms a somewhat secluded yet inviting connection between the centre and the lake. The base of the blocks will be cladded in wood, while on top of this base a total of nine lantern-like towers will be placed.
