Helsinki Dreispitz is the first residential building on the Dreispitz site and encompasses 41 rental flats, as well as a storage area and offices. A juxtaposition of living, working and culture manifests itself on the Dreispitz site, as well as within this building. The storage area accommodates Herzog & de Meuron’s comprehensive archives and a collection of artworks belonging to the company. The offices are currently also used by Herzog & de Meuron.


The facade is conceived as a seamless self-supporting reinforced-concrete facade, the functioning of which is largely independent of the building’s interior. A wide-meshed concrete network, or grid, envelops the upper structure, comprising floors four to eleven, and protectively encloses the flats’ balconies.
