Muurikuja 1 Housing / ARK-house Architects

first_img Area:  8630 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project 2010 Photographs Photographs:  Jussi TiainenText description provided by the architects. Muurikuja 1 Housing does not attempt to be in harmony with its multifaceted context. The facades collage of colors, reds, oranges, greens, and yellows stand out against the black wall backdrop. The new social housing block is situated amidst the existing industrial and office building construction, along with desolate prefabricated housing from 1990.Save this picture!© Jussi TiainenRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornMetallicsSculptformClick-on Battens in Ivanhoe ApartmentsFiber Cements / CementsApavisaTiles – Nanofusion 7.0Enclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEAAfter the break are more photographs and drawings of this new housing block by ARK-house Architects. The buildings present a towering front on waterside road, and are noise barrier-like black boxes. The appearance of the side corridor walls with their randomly organized openings is lightened by the use of laminate panels with a wood grain pattern – a sympathetic imitation material coupled with the large modular-size bricks used to clad the walls.  Green and orange ochre rendered brick walls are broken up by patches of white.
