PUU-KIVISTÖ IDEA COMPETITION IN VANTAA
Competition 1st prize, 2018
TIENO Architects, together with Arkkitehtipalvelu and NOMAJI Landscape Architects have won the Puu-Kivistö design-build competition in Vantaa, Finland. In collaboration with artist Osmo Rauhala.
The architecture of Bosco city block is unique and recognizable. It forms a well-articulated and homogenous ensemble through the simple and clear form language, which naturally emerges from the structural solutions. The strength of architectural concept lies in the vibrant volumes defined by the dynamic rooflines combined with the unique balcony facade where the load bearing structure plays the aesthetic role it deserves. The clever use of wooden cladding in elevations brings playful yet prominent appearance to the buildings.
Bosco city block is ecological by its nature. The load bearing structure is from LVL wood and wall structure is totally plastic and toxic free. Steeply pitched roofs allow to benefit from solar energy, but south facing balconies protects from overheating in summer. The green roofs together with reservoirs integrated in courtyard helps to manage rainwater.
The project will be realised in collaboration with Sisco Oyj and Sisco Vuokra-asunnot Oy.
