We designed a large, architecturally prestige and cityscape-complimenting block that has three parts.
All parts of the block were designed to include ground-level commercial space. On top of the commercial ground floor, the block is edged with residential houses that have homely garden areas.
In the middle of the designed block are three lighthouse-like tower buildings. Storage and parking spaces are situated in the basement.
Between commercial spaces at the end of the street, Haakoninlahdenkatu forms a lit up and lively square Kruunu, from where a view opens to the south all the way to the sea.
The facades of the building are partly masonry and partly scraping finished and the facades facing toward the Kruunu square are tile laced. In the dark the tile laced facade comes alive making the buildings look like glowing torches. The asymmetrical balconies bring interesting movement into the otherwise calm facade.
