EUROPAN HOUSING

Helsinki | Finland    Residential    80.000 sqm    International Competition    Europan 9

The Idea belongs to a bigger proposal that aims to reactivate the surroundings of Helsinki with a belt of sports trails and activities. This Housing is meant to be the core spot of the sports complex. A group of other small projects will be located in the villages around the lake to be used as resting and gathering areas for the users of the sports trails.

The project is located in a site that was previously occupied by a Dense Pine Forest, nemesis of its image. The remaining natural stones and have been kept and integrated into the project. The common areas of the development connect the Courtyards with the access through a double height rooftops/ greenhouse and open facilities. The double ventilated combined skin ( wood, metal, and glass) remain fresh during the hot summer and allows sunlight in winter.
