KCAP Architects&Planners and ORANGE Architects win the first prize in the urban and architectural competition for the most western tip of Vasilievsky Island in St. Petersburg. With its important role in the historical outreach of St. Petersburg towards the West, Vasiliesvky Island will become the most prominent manifestation of the city of St. Petersburg on the Gulf of Finland. With the urban plan, the 15 ha site will become a new part of the city with a diverse mix of urban functions facilitating and interconnecting the surrounding areas. It will become a new face of St. Petersburg as entrance of the city from the water.

The project shows three distinct actions on the island (recovering historical buildings, student accommodation and university campus).

“This ‘island’, less than two hours from Istanbul, is a jewel on the Turkish coastline; it epitomizes the beautiful and serene character that has made Yalikavak and Bodrum such a wonderful home or destination,” said Philip Olmesdahl, team leader and director of Cape Town-based SAOTA, at the launch. “I’ve had the pleasure to work in far reaches of the world – yet never on such a phenomenal property as this.”
