Instead of one central square, the new solution offers plurality. The landscaping reintroduced into the city centre will be made into five squares: the central square, the market square, the municipal council square, the bus station square and the parking lot. Squares with strict geometry interrupt the flow and freedom of nature. Their layout invites visitors to explore the whole city – from a distance, the next building or a beam of light draws the attention. The square is a concentration of social activities, a dense urban unit. Due to the variety, each square can be exactly the right size to fulfil its function – to host fairs, concerts and community movie nights.
The central square behind the tavern in the heart of the city has been turned into an attractive open urban space every season. A network of wire ropes resting on four steel poles has been pulled over the square, creating a distinctive ceiling of lights. Together with the screening wall of the bus pavilion, a functional space for city events will be created. The centre of Tõrva is dense, compact and due to the diversity of the spatial conditions, it is always bustling with life.
