Meripaviljonki, Helsinki

Meripaviljonki, Helsinki

Meripaviljonki is a unique floating restaurant building, with an underwater pile structure that enables it to adjust to changes in the sea level (from -0.9 metres to 2.5 metres). The design, which draws inspiration from the shape of the water lily, was achieved with 3D modelling, which was used to fit together the building’s various steel structures, built on different levels. Meripaviljonki is the only floating public building in Helsinki. Changes in weather and ice loads were taken into account in the design. The product compliance of the unique glass façade was verified with a work-site-specific expert statement.
