SITI proposes a cohesive new sustainable gateway development that redefines the image of Itäkeskus to provide a new identity for modern high-quality mixed-use urban living. SITI is the eastern gate to Helsinki, an established commercial centre with a reinvigorated cultural heart and new landmark gateway developments that redefine the commuter experience. High-density housing supports the development of this district, with an urban massing suitable to the scale of the existing infrastructure whilst creating buildings of an approachable scale. Transport canyons are bridged and connected both physically and visually through attractive landscaped links that lead to new public spaces. Crossing a busy road becomes a safe and enjoyable pedestrian and cyclist experience of connectivity, with a variety of active frontages to ensure an inviting and dynamic streetscape through all times of the day. The overall massing allows for flexibility between types, uses and future adaptability.
