Viikinmäki housing

The City of Helsinki arranged in co-operation with the Ministry of Environment and Rakennusteollisuus RT a competition for the design of a new housing area in the western part of Viikinmäki, east of Helsinki. The brief asked for special emphasis on the questions of building low and dense, solutions for a sloping terrain, and the development of the use of stone in the building process.

Our proposal, designed in co-operation with VVO, got the second prize in the competition.
