Niittysillankulma residential building is a good example to show the surface that can make the building interesting. The ultimate contrast of black and white colour as well as geometric patterns make it even more attractive. It is a social housing project which is located near Niittykumpu metro station and there are 2 housing buildings consisting of 114 apartments and an underground garage. All the apartment has a balcony and view in 2 directions.
The chessboard-like pattern on the facades are out of concrete with Graphic Concrete and the lace-like pattern was made out of fibre concrete. ArkOpen Oy planed buildings and Juha Kämäräinen has been in charge of. The patterns of elements and panels were designed by Janne Järvinen and Rudus Oy Savonlinna has made the prefabrication work. The moulds for the fibre concrete panels were done by Topi Äikäs.
