Länsi-Viikinmäki Housing & Parking
The result of an invited competition consists of the social rental housing block and the right-of-occupancy housing block. Together with the parking house they form the entrance to the new Länsi-Viikinmäki Housing Area and make a noise barrier against nearby motorway.
The multi-storey apartment blocks with narrow systematic building bodies form two uneven courtyards.
The parking house has a major role as it is seen from the main street leading to the area. The hilly and stony natural landscape served as a catalyst for the concept.
The parking house is a 3-storey building with entrances on each floor from the road sloping down the side of the plot. The rooftop has open parking places and a green roof.
