Helsingin Viuhka housing company, designed by Konkret, was awarded Concrete Structure of the Year in 2016. The gleaming white 11-storey tower is an example of a new, innovative architecture and a result of effective collaboration between the stakeholders. A new balcony concept was developed, a so-called dice balcony cast in one piece of concrete. The cube-like balconies break down the monotony of the tall building and enliven the facade with their play of light and shadow. The mostly prefabricated structural frame and the integration of HVAC systems in the structural frame substantially reduced the time needed on the construction site.
