Helsingin Viuhka is an apartment building located right next to the Rastila metro station in Eastern Helsinki. The clever balconies give the building an interesting and graphic texture and make it a memorable landmark of the suburb.
The tower block was built on a very tight and challenging piece of land and the successful outcome is a product of thorough cooperation. The hard work of the project participants paid off because Helsingin Viuhka was recently awarded the Concrete Structure of 2016 (Vuoden Betonirakenne 2016).
Konkret Architects was in charge of the architectural design and we photographed the building for them.
