Elo Colosseum D / Kilterinkuja 4

In the first decade of the 21st century was the office- and institute building block of Kilterinmäki in Myyrmäki, Vantaa, apart from former so called Colosseum buildings of Fortum converted into residental area. Our office created a city plan transition and a local enviroment guide to the area and architected the apartment buildings of the main block by assignment of Vantaa city and VVO.

Work retirement insurance company Elo, that nowadays owns the former premises of Fortum ordered a plot usage plan from us in spring 2014 to change a city block area of an office building Colosseum D into housing purposes.

The solution follows the half-open building trend of Kilterinmäki. The Northern side is limited by a lamella house that in its East end rises up to a 12-storey landmark. The Western side is bordered by 5-storey tower blocks in between whose in both top- and bottom levels stay small platzas by whose is placed entrances and additonal spaces of apartments. Parking lot is placed into two basement levels of the lamella house in the Northern side of area. Project will be carried out half as privately owned- and half as rental apartments.

Reference plan was completed in spring 2016 and city plan of the object is created currently based on our reference plan.
