Ecological, urban life in the heart of historical Helsinki
The interior design concept was shaped as a result of shared conversations. One can feel the history in the apartments, yet modifications such as walk-in closets reflect the modern-day requirements. Sustainability was the main principle to guide the choices, including the timeless visual look and technical solutions. Water fixtures were refurbished to meet Green Building criteria. New materials such as quartz countertops were chosen to withstand even heavy use. Existing structures – such as some of the kitchen cabinets – were saved whenever they still had good years ahead.
