TILA open building project in Helsinki

The Tila housing block, comprising 39 loft apartments, is a pilot project for neo-loft apartments in Helsinki, Arabianranta. The concept is based on an open construction system: within the available building frame the resident determines and builds the required subdivisions. The flats are occupiable at the moment of purchase, but become completely habitable with the installation of kitchen furniture. The residents can build individual rooms or expand their flat with gallery-type spaces, because the height of the main space is five metres.
