Original Art and Ironwork
The building offers 116 new apartments. Majority of these apartments opens to the south and looks onto a big central courtyard. The fact that spaces facing the street are designated for shops and restaurants means that they are higher than usual, thus allowing for small lofts in the apartments on the courtyard side.
In accordance with the Kivistö Centre 5th Zoning Area stipulations, the architecture is restrained and urban in character.The facades are red brick, and the first two floors have been visually connected in order to create more of a city feel to the adjacent square.
Berry Creative collaborated on the project, as it did on other projects in the area. Kaisa Berry’s art theme was “Pilviportti” (“The Cloud Gate”). Jouko Niemi, the master blacksmith, forged the iron gate on the Safiiri Square side. The porte cochère that leads into the calm and green central courtyard is painted turquoise and titled “The Cloud Gate”.
