HEKA Ruususenrinne

HEKA Ruususenrinne is an urban infill project in eastern Helsinki designed with careful consideration of its surroundings. The group of buildings form a living environment in human scale, offering a wide range of rental apartments from terraced houses with their own yard to studio apartments.

The curving 5-storey building has a single loaded corridor that allows residents long views to the low slope. The 3-storey houses maximize the area of private outdoor spaces for its occupants. The planning was done in close collaboration with a landscape architect to ensure comfortable and functioning outdoor spaces. There is also an underground car park situated, according to the topography, to the western side of the plot.
