Gulholmen. The small island village, the main part of which is an island off the coast of densely built up low-rise buildings. Along the perimeter of the island - the marina, almost the entire coast of the circuit busy boats, yachts and boats of residents.
Each village buildings open view of the expanse of water. Every resident can this stretch of water reached by swimming facilities located nearby. Because of its specific location, the cars on the island there is little, all transport links - water.
Let's try to simulate an object in general terms, the most similar in concept to Gulholmen, but has features of Russian architecture, developed in the second half of the nineteenth century.
Search of geographic point
For such an object, you must find the geographical location. Historically, these settlements are characteristic of the White Sea - rather harsh climate and poor soil of the North forced residents rely mainly on fishing. In such areas, there was an economic orientation to the water (and not on the ground, both in areas to the south), to form the structural basis of the coastal villages.
But try to choose a place with a mild climate. For example, the central Russia.
In central Russia, despite the vast land, not much larger reservoirs with relatively calm water - lakes and lake systems.
One of the largest bodies of water suitable to us is the type of Lake Seliger. Its border is quite a lot of islands with the missing buildings, is the best suitable for the construction of a desired object.
On the southern shore of the lake it is founded in the XIV century city Ostashkov (16 837 people). Place in the village, it is desirable to find not far from the city, for the opportunity to save on infrastructure.
800 m from Ostashkov and 400 meters from the Monastery of the Mother of God is the island Fomichev. It will be the base point of a new settlement of the same name.
Marshy shores of the island, the depth of the lake may not be enough for the passage of vessels (eg yacht). In connection with this proposed deepening of the fairway, the adjustment circuit, removal of plants inherent in marshy parts of the reservoir, raising the ground level in order to protect against floods.
After the data landscaping court can freely approach any point of the coast of the island.
Synthesis of image
The initial prototype Fomichev - Gulholmen. But as Fomichev is on the historical territory of Russia, the structure of the settlement will be made up of Russian forms; Gulholmena when replacing forms in Russian, its inherent macroform (representing a built-up island with heavy transport and possibly economic orientation of the water) is stored.

Perhaps Fomichev is a unique city in Russia, having such a concept. The fundamental idea of allowing this certainly create an interesting collection of objects defined. It remains only perform actions that can, under certain conditions to put these ideas into practice.
