Abstract (in English)

The Hamina area in Ii is a market place that sprang up in the 1500s; the oldest existing buildings are from the 1800s. Energy-economic renovations were done in the 1970s under the supervision of government-approved specialists, but the renovations ignored the viewpoint of building conservation. Individual buildings lost their architectural historical value and their authenticity. Still, the buildings together with their outbuildings and courtyards form a relatively whole, intimate entity. A new wave of renovation is beginning in the area. At the same time it is possible to restore the original outward appearance of individual buildings. Thus, for many of the buildings the renovation will mean dismantling the drastic modifications of the 1970s and re-renovating them, while respecting the original architectural features of each building
