Kvosin Link
Architect: jaja architects
Status: Competition (2012)
Clasification: Finalist
Visualizer: Studio
Scale: 7.500 ㎡ Large
Types: Intervention, Public space

In our proposal we suggest making a contribution to Kvosin’s historic development through meeting the scale of the existing buildings on all three adjacent squares, whilst simultaneously strengthening the present urban pattern of the neighbourhood. By densifying and upgrading the existing perimeter block, we are able to redefine and frame the adjacent public spaces.

With its central location in the heart of Kvosin, the combination of existing and new, built and urban, city and hotel are able to be read as a coherent, yet heterogenic whole.
