L Architects proposal "Lähiösinfonia" was awarded first price!
The Hakunila suburb will be in the future known for its active tram station, the continuation of active "suburb-parks" and of a progressive way of understanding housing as a service and as a city platform. The resident does not neither own or rent, but acquires housing as a service. Both the dwelling and related services. All apartments in the competition proposal are connectable. This allows a longer life cycle of an apartment building and multi-purpose first floor creates a lively streetscape.
