Marienholm Peninsula Planning
2022 / In Design / 75 000 m2
Team: Lisette Eriste, Gert Guriev, Ilmar Valdur
The Marienholm peninsula is a unique place in the entire Baltic Sea region. Due to its openness to the sea, the environment built on the peninsula can be seen from all directions and has a strong impact on the entire skyline of Haapsalu. Reviving the maritime culture of the peninsula is important in establishing a new living environment. Because of that, the main aim of the project is to create landing opportunities for ships with different drafts. For example, the wharf at the top of the island is Haapsalu's deepest waterway, which can attract guests from all over the Baltic Sea region. Due to that, the lagoon of Haapsalu Bay has great potential to become the Venice of the Baltic Sea and the epicenter of local maritime culture.
