A wooden block in the Kuninkaantammi residential area in Helsinki. The design focuses on a colorful small-scale cityscape according to the area’s master plan. Special care is also taken in landscape design, with emphasis on the four different seasons.

The buildings are designed and built using finished wooden modules. The modular building system is fast, cost-effective and safe construction technology as the modules are built and furnished indoors at the factory.
