Landscape Composition Development Stages in Multi-Storey Residential Areas of the Baltic Sea Region

Una Īle


Several stages of development tendencies exist in the multi-storey residential area courtyards of the Baltic Sea region. These stages can be divided into three groups of courtyards. The first group comprises those multi-storey residential area courtyards that have not experienced any improvement and rearrangement of the spatial environment over the last 10 years. These are mostly realized in the period of the Soviet Union. The second group is characterized by the fact that courtyards in the modern multi-storey residential areas are successfully planned and correspond to inhabitants’ recreation possibilities, but are not attached to the general urban planning system. This group comprises courtyards that were built over the last five years. The third group considers those modern courtyards that correspond to functional solutions of landscape composition planning and provide a pleasant environment. Consequently, the present state of courtyards in the Baltic Sea region urban multi-storey residential areas is diverse and flexible.
