Ny Karla

The city of Karlskrona needs a new way to interact with the sea trough an attractive district with a strong identity, that could extend the urban context and connect different areas. The aim of the project is to reinterpret the structure of the archipelago using the rules and the scale of the city to create a new floating district on the sea. The idea of the ‘archipelago within the archipelago’ proposes an urban strategy able to generate new relations within the city and the nature, whilst being a connective and generating structure.
The sea is taken as a platform of a new urban morphology, where the presence of the water allows the city elements to be more flexible and moveable. To be productive again is thought as a possibility to realise an unconventional settlement of experiences. Public, private and production are mixed together to create a space that can work 24/7/365 in a variable composition, that can be adaptable and sustainable. Contrary to the the static zoning approach, our project suggests to bring different programs working together: the housing is merged with the marina and the facilities are diffused around them.
