Ülemine Pärnu rannapromenaadi maastikuarhitetuur

OBJECTIVE

To extend the beach area that is actively utilised and the period when it is used.

SOLUTION

A design was made for the 500-metre section of beach between Lehe, Kuuse and Side Streets.

Since moving sand dunes create problems in Pärnu and there is the danger of flooding, a concrete supporting wall (ca. 1 metre high) was built to protect the beach promenade both vertically and horizontally. To give the area character, a unique fountain was installed at the end of each street. The fountains have become popular attractions for both sunbathers and stroller on hazy summer nights. To encourage people to stroll, the pathway was paved, and benches, litter bins and lighting were installed.

Sales stalls, influenced by the shape of historical kiosks, were designed for the end of Kuuse Street. A beach service building was designed for the end of Side Street. Wooden platforms for sunbathing were installed between the dunes, which can also be used as for beach concerts.

A viewing tower and café, with a wooden terrace, was planned for the end of Side Street.

The Pärnu Beach Promenade was recognised as a reviver of Estonian promenade culture in 2006.
