The pavilion designed by Architects a-live placed as first runner-up at the Vaasa Kalaranta contest

Posted 29/11/2016

The city of Vaasa organized a contest for the pavilion at Kalaranta in Vaasa. The goal of the contest was to find a high standard building developer, a high-quality architectural solution and a successful business concept for Vaasa's Kalaranta area. Architects a-live took part in the contest together with its cooperation partners Hirviniemi Capital Oy and Rakennus Mire Oy. 

The Kalaranta pavilion designed by Architects a-live was based on the idea of a multi-usable public building that allows various functions simultaneously. According to the competition review, "The design [of the pavilion] is architecturally impressive and insightful. The building respects its environment exceptionally, takes into account all the essential views and represents local history in a modern way. The design language and colours of the building are reminiscent of old ships and local port industry.”  (”Suunnitelma on arkkitehtonisesti hieno ja oivaltava. Rakennus ottaa ympäristönsä huomioon kiitettävällä tavalla, huomioi tärkeimmät näkymät ja kertoo modernilla tavalla alueen historiasta. Rakennuksen muotokielen ja värityksen avulla on luotu muistumia vanhoista laivoista ja alueen satamatoiminnasta.”)

The city council crowned Smakkompaniet’s “Kalastuksen talo” (“The House of Fishing”) as the winner of the competition on 28th of November 2016. The contest entry of Hirviniemi Capital Oy, Rakennus Mire Oy and Architects a-live placed as first runner-up in the contest. 

Architects a-live thanks partners for cooperation.
