The existing system of urban blocks is being expanded and enhanced. Irregularities in the gird condensate the movement of people and create a network of town squares with different primary uses.
Through incremental transformation the existing structuring roads are being redesigned to productive streets enliven by flanking zones of mixed uses. Complementary, residential side alleys provide the needed density of population and act as a public space able of strengthening the local community.
By combining productive streets and residential alleys, conditions for diverse users are provided in the very urban centre, thus reducing city sprawling. Urban development embraces the central park area directly used by the residents and serves as the hearth of the seamless TornioHaparanda.
