The project´s area consists of two plots near Maunulas 1950´s centre. The plots are bordered by a park in the north and by Heka-Maunula Oy´s 1970´s apartment block environment, Metsäpuronties 1950´s area, as well as Maunulas public-school in the other three directions.
Both plots are mostly situated on a slope. The change in height on the northern parts of the plots is rapid, which posed a challenge when planning the project. The project consists of five separate types of buildings: small apartment blocks, terraced houses and point houses. The buildings are made out of wall like parts of a uniform material, that connect to the existing surroundings through its tiled facades. The northern plot´s buildings fit in with the neighbouring 1970´s buildings when it comes to typology and scale, whereas the southern plot´s buildings fit in with Metsäpuroties environment of a smaller scale.
