This exhibit communicates an extremely inventive framework for living, created in the Tila House in Helsinki. We see this project as a transformative typology for habitation in that it provides the freespace for the occupants to inhabit a given volume in a variety of different ways. The common shared facilities and services are provided, but the private living spaces are offered to the inhabitant as an unfinished shell.
The structural skeleton and bones of the building facilitates free habitation. A 5m-high volume is provided throughout. The primary structure is designed so that each inhabitant can build mezzanine spaces. Building regulations are cleverly navigated. Common circulation spaces and covered deck access generate a convivial atmosphere.
The exhibit creates an intimate domestic space within which this story is revealed in two acts: the framework for living, and the story of occupation. These architects broke free from the normal restrictive methods of providing places for living, challenging the typical approach to development, determined to show that alternatives are possible.
The strategic moves are the invention of the project and the provision of generous spatial gifts to the user. They communicate a rich story, the end result of a complex and challenging journey for the architects.
