Award-winning Leppävaara 2.0

Apr 24th, 2024

We are proud to announce that our proposal “Taikavarpu” has won 3rd prize in the Leppävaara 2.0 open architectural competition.

Led by B&M Architects, the design team also included LOCI Landscape Architects, Peab, SATO, TA, Finnmap Infra (traffic design) and Sitowise (geo concultancy).

The competition task involved renewing the centre of Leppävaara as well as connecting the two currently distinct sides of the train line. “Taikavarpu” achieves this with a concept in which smooth connections and downtown functions are integrated into a clear and visually attractive entity.

We emphasized themes such as a lively and expressive environment, sustainable and flexible structure, and green and walkable urban areas. In the award-winning proposal, a technical-economic solution was presented which minimizes the climate load and preserves the city’s infrastructure to the greatest extent possible.
