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.


Emanating from an almost trapezoidal footprint with dimensions of around 43 x 17/28 m on the ground floor, Helsinki Dreispitz comprises two underground floors, four base floors with storage and exhibition rooms, and eight office or residential floors. The outline of the largely closed-off base follows the pre-existing train tracks, while the upwardly tapering shape of the building, which is 40 m tall, adheres to the permissible clearance profile.
