Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA) has won the international Masterplan 2030 competition to revitalize the Old City Harbor in Tallinn, Estonia. Entitled “Streamcity,” the masterplan involves the integration of the surrounding environment to strengthen the connection between the harbor and the city over the next several years. The redevelopment will comprise four stages, and will see the creation of new commercial, office, residential, and leisure facilities. The design is expected to be finalized by the end of this year. All new amenities will be intersected with a network of urban walkways and public spaces. Vacant plots of land will serve as park or transitional spaces during each phase.
“Zaha Hadid have very skilfully created a balanced connection between urban space and the port area with some carefully considered access roads and traffic solutions,” said Valdo Kalm, management board chairman for the Port of Tallinn. “What stands out in their designs are the diagonals running through them of the pedestrian footpaths, around which a very diverse and memorable city space has been established.”
ZHA will collaborate on the project with Latvian architecture firm RemPro as well as engineering consultancy Tyrens UK and real estate firms Colliers Estonia and RLB UK.
