'Maailman Pylväs' Residential Tower

JKMM Architects as Architects

Maailman pylväs tower block is the first of the three planned towers at the tip of the shore. The entry 'Moai' was a winner of a competition held in 2011. The site locates in Äijälänranta, Jyväskylä, about two kilometers from the city centre across the lake Päijänne. The building was a part of the housing fair of Äijälänranta in the summer 2014. The architecture consists of prefabricated black and white facade elements. In the white parts the seams of the elements has been left exposed and exaggerated by excessive cut grooves extending across multiple floors the nature of pre-fabrication as a theme. The deep, cantilevered balconies in the upper floors are covered in wood giving the character to the facade facing the lake.
