the social housing project, ‘saukonpaasi’ by finnish studio huttunen lipasti pakkanen arkkitehdit features a 3D façade with semi-transparent balconies. part of the jätkäsaari housing area in helsinki, finland, the perforated exterior provides its inhabitants both a sense of privacy and openness as well as solar protection for the interior spaces. the block is enclosed by a wall that forms an inner garden and separates the housing from the street. the envelope of the structure is made from white, pre-fabricated concrete elements from rieder smart elements, who manufactured more than 2.000 m²  of three-dimensional fibre C façade panels for the development. there is a continuous interplay between large and small openings along the brick wall with an integrated fastening system. the versatile nature of the reinforced concrete components enabled an economical solution for the ‘saukonpaasi project.’
