The triangular residential block is located close to Rastila metro station and is bordered by Karavaanikuja on the north, Karavaanikatu on the east and Vuoraitti on the south. The building mass rises as it encircles the enclosed block. Coherent architecture dissolves the boundary line between the block’s two separate plots and housing companies. Facades are made up of prefabricated concrete panels. The block’s outer facades are predominately faced in brick tile, while the inner facades are white concrete. The brick tile facades are varied with different tile patterns. On the metro line side, the balcony facades are clad in brick red and grey aluminium louvres. Intensive collaboration using building information modelling (BIM) played a central role in this project from detail city plan stage to construction stage. The project was awarded with an honourable mention for use of BIM in the Tekla BIM Awards.
