In 2008, the City of Helsinki organized a building competition for some Länsi-Viikinmäki plots, still under construction. Our proposal, ”River Guard,” won first place for an 850 kem2 building.
The building has three levels of living space, with parking and storage facilities on the ground floor. The apartment sizes range from small one-bedroom units to large family homes. The entrances are placed on an open loft gallery, and all homes have their own yard or a large patio. The housing association has a shared a sauna on the roof, with views over Vantaa River.
