Lorentzinpuisto Apartments

Project comprises three five storey apartment buildings next to a public recreational area. The project is the winning proposal of an architectural competition arranged by the city of Helsinki.
The buildings are characterized by the triangular cantilevered balconies and the narrow windowless northern façade, which is further accentuated by a cloud-like relief made of slightly modified off the shelf bricks.
The monochromatic facades are of rough off-white handmade brick, white concrete and white painted steel.
