The task was to create a high-quality urban residential area and provide for programs suitable for the city structure and for the landscape. At the same time, recreational use of the shores had to be enabled while providing for a natural connection to Hämeenpuisto Esplanade.

‘Sunny Side of the City’ is a concept that brings the city to the lake and the lake to the city. New living is integrated into the park which offers a lake shore for everyone. The lake side in connection with the city acts as a catalyst for the development of the whole city and the wider region.
