Kotisaarenkatu housing

Playa Architects as Architects

Project comprises three villa-like apartment buildings in Toukoranta, Helsinki. The project is part of the subsidized HITAS-program organized by the city of Helsinki.


The buildings are characterized by the wood paneled balcony zones along the street and courtyard facades. Triangular extra storage space has been integrated into the balcony walls. The resulting portal shape maximizes natural light in the apartments.


Entrances are from semi-public courtyards that are slightly elevated from the street-level.


Communal saunas and terraces are on the top floor and offer unobstructed views to the sea.
