Kärdla Square has been nominated for the Estonian Landscape Architecture prize!

The winner will be announced in mid-December.  

Kärdla is the main town on the small Estonian island Hiiumaa. In 2015 MARLED together with architects Olsson Lyckefors won first prize in this general competition to redesign the outdated town center. The context is rurban, people from all over the island come here for services and shopping. The elongated space used to be dominated by traffic and parking, but a new square with market pavilions, pedestrian street, urban sports, and a playground have transformed it to a local family friendly destination.
