Borgströminmäki Housing accomplished
A condominium unit of four blocks of flats ”Kruunuvuoren Kuningas” and ”Kruunuvuoren Kuningatar” was completed, as the inhabitants moved in just before Easter. The project consists of 91 apartments, two mutual sauna departments and an underground parking hall. The landscaping is carried out using the bosky ground of surrounding archipelago woodland with local shrubs, instead of lawn or typical courtyard greenery. As the buildings are set on the highest point of the area, Helsinki city skyline is to be seen from the upper floors.
