Länsi-Mustasaarelle Housing

Lansi Mustasaarelle


Competition Entry for 6-10 new housing units on a waterside site in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Suomenlinna.

The project provides flexible housing for multiple generations to live under the same roof using affordable construction techniques. A ‘light-touch’ landscape strategy provides a new public waterside path and two semi-private courtyards which mediate the transition between private dwelling and the popular tourist routes around the Island.

The buildings are clad in patterned brick and zinc which reference the adjacent vernacular buildings.
