BUILDING RENOVATION

ARCH: RAKSILA APARTMENT BUILDING RENOVATION

Raksila, Oulu - Unbuilt

w/Niko Kotkavuo

2017- unbuilt

The renovation plan proposal for 70's  severely weathered concrete element building got it's inspiration from the opposite side of the road. The original houses  architectural value's, derived from  bold  economics, got to make way for more humane solutions and materials.

 

In the proposal every apartment gets a balcony or two, carages are turned into residential workshop, boiler room is turned into a kiosk and the old oversized 1st floor storage gets a new life as a lush resident living room with greenery spaces.

Over the renovated original part we propose 2 extra stories build in prefab CLT- modules which can be just lifted on the top.
