koidukant / koidu street design

With a systematic approach sensitive to the local conditions, this calm residential street in the city centre could develop a stronger sense of community.

The street is divided into three neighbourhoods, each with its distinct characteristics, centred around a hub. The hubs have slightly different purposes and serve as important gathering places for the entire community of Uus Maailm.

Each neighbourhood also features smaller intersections: home corners. Furniture elements such as planters and chess tables enable the community to rearrange these spaces according to their needs, cultivating a sense of belonging.

Saturni hub

Saturni hub features expanded street corners along with a mini park that functions as a common backyard. The square becomes a peaceful space for leisure, picnics and visiting neighbourhood cafés.

Narrow street segments
Wider street segments

The street is tied together through a unified street design, dividing the street into 3 zones. The threshold zone creates a buffer around the houses, which the residents have the freedom to design.

The slow speed zone forms a flexible front yard, containing sidewalks along with recreational and practical functions. Some segments include larger gathering spaces, parks or rainwater collection areas.

The centre of the street is a moderate speed zone, shared between cars, bicycles and pedestrians, with cyclists setting the pace.
