Nagu is situated in the town of Pargas, in Turku Archipelago, along the Archipelago Trail. Nagu is famous for the largest guest harbor in Finland and especially the summer tourism that follows. The future vision focused on the development of the scenically important Framnäs cape area that is in close proximity to the guest harbor. In the Framnäs area, there’s a people’s house that is used as a venue for events and a beach popular among locals. The area is planned to be developed so that it could offer all-year-round tourism services for visitors and more diverse services for the town residents. The point of departure for the project is the scale of archipelago construction characteristic of Nagu as well as connecting Framnäs to the guest harbor and city center and emphasizing existing recreational routes.
In the future Framnäs, there’s a travel terminal for fast ferries to Turku and other parts of the archipelago, a relaxing outdoor swimming pool and spa complex with a maritime atmosphere that can also accommodate congresses, an active and functional beachfront as well as the historical surroundings of Framnäs people’s house that now better serve the organization of events and festivities. A new floating city with permanent and temporary housing is located in the east end of the lagoon. The vision plan was created on the basis of a participatory urban planning workshop organized together with Nordic Works.
