"Solution REDI"
Helsinki, Kalasatama

Design competition

The REDI shopping centre opened in Kalasatama, Helsinki, launched a competition at the end of 2018, the main goal of which was to facilitate navigation and visibility in the shopping centre. The solution was expected to be distinctive, clear, feasible, cost-effective, and capable of serving a wide variety of user groups. In addition to this, the desire was to make the solution to improve the shopping experience of the shopping centre and/or improve tenants’ operating conditions.

Our plans were awarded an honourable mention. As a starting point for our winning design, we wanted to take advantage of Redi’s current strengths: the subway, the Stadi-Sk├Âne line at Kalasatamankatu, and the location at the interface between the capital city and the marine archipelago.
