“Meander” Moves Forward

Steven Holl Architects’ “Meander,” a 2006 international competition winning design for central Helsinki housing, is now moving forward after being delayed by economic slowdown in 2008.

The project maximizes sunlight for 80 apartments offering private views of Hesperia park and the Baltic Sea. Residents of the 180 meter long building will have access to a rooftop sauna and scenic path spanning its length.

The project is one of Steven Holl Architects’ 9 projects in design development in addition to 9 projects currently under construction.
