Konkret has prepared the reference plan for a new multipurpose building to Runosmäki in collaboration with NCC and the City of Turku. The plan is based on Konkret’s winning proposal “Kvartetti” for a competition held in 2020.
The aim of the multipurpose building is to serve as a versatile place for services for all residents of the area. The main purpose facilities in the building include a library, youth facilities, a church and society spaces. In addition, the building has a considerable number of early childhood education facilities as well as health care counseling facilities.
The massing of the building respects the principle of the original modernist urban structure of the Runosmäki area: a lively and active town square is created between the four rectangular masses. The building consists of several pieces that scale to the environment, allowing varied and interesting facade views from different directions.
