Toukolankustaa, Helsinki

Toukolankustaa, Helsinki

Konkret’s (part of AINS Group) proposal for Toukalankustaa won first prize in a plot transfer competition organised by the City of Helsinki. The competition brief emphasised innovative energy and cost-efficient construction. Locating the stairs in the centre of the building allowed for the apartments to inhabit the entire area of the building’s outer skin. A 6×6 metre module and free span created generous room dimensions and flexible partitioning of apartments.  A high degree of prefabrication and a systematic approach achieved a cost-efficient building, which is easily maintained in the long term.
