Identity creators such as Sentrumsaksen, Kulturkvartalet, the transverse axes towards the seafront are especially emphasized in addition to selected highlights. The purpose is to clarify axes and connections, and show the best qualities in each area. Glow from within is brought out in the warm brick colors and historic atmosphere in buildings and environments.
