Urban plan in Raksila, 2013

The urban plan proposal is located in the Raksila area in Oulu between a small scale wood residential area, cemetery and residential area built in the 70s. The new urban plan in Raksila consists of five major city blocks. Between every block is a green aisle separating the blocks from each other. Blocks have half private courtyards which foster a social community in the neighbourhood. Through the blocks goes a cycling road, and cars enter the area from the north. The new Raksila plan gets denser towards the city center of Oulu. The park in the south connects the small scale old wood Raksila to the new plan. The plan emphasizes identity, surroundings and hierarchy.
