Kunniamaininta Saga Palvelutalon uudisosan suunnittelulle
Kestävä Kivitalo -ryhmä myönsi kunniamaininnan Kiinteistö Oy Helsingin Dosentinlinnalle eli Helsingin Munkkiniemessä sijaitsevan Saga Palvelutalon uudisosalle tunnustuksena laadukkaasta ja innovatiivisesta suunnittelusta paikalla rakentamisen eri osa-alueita hyödyntäen.
Rohkea erilaisten materiaalien ja rakenneyksityiskohtien yhdistäminen perinteiseen tiilirakentamiseen tekee rakennuksesta persoonallisella tavalla mieleenpainuvan, mutta samalla se on harmoninen ja ympäristöönsä hyvin istuva. Uudisosan arkkitehtisuunnittelusta vastasi Arkkitehtitoimisto Cederqvist & Jäntti Arkkitehdit Oy.
