Niittysillankulma social housing project is located near Niittykumpu metro station. The project consists of two housing units, 114 apartments and an underground garage.
Black and white facades continue the series of newly build black and white buildings along the street. Yellow and red used in the facades and interiors are similar to the colours of the neighbouring Niittykumpu school build in 1948.
Every apartment has a balcony and views in two different directions.
The project was made with precast concrete elements. The chessboard-like facades are mainly black and white graphic concrete elements and lace-like fibre concrete elements. The patterns of elements and panels were designed by Janne Järvinen and the moulds for the fibre concrete panels were by Topi Äikäs.
