The New York studio Workac have been selected for the reconversion of the 8 hectares of "New Holland Island", the former naval port of Saint-Petersburg. The project combines the creation of a public park and the reutilisation of old warehouses to create a new cultural hub for the city. An interior promenade connecting the roof-tops of the various warehouses will also enable the public to stroll around throughout the year.
