The Minnantähti building was designed simultaneously with that of the Minnankantti company in 2000-01. They are architecturally very similar and form a single entity occupying half of a block. Residents share use of the yard and the terrace and pergola on the roof of the commercial annex with those of the Minnankantti building, and they are also able to sunbathe on another terrace located on the roof of the third floor apartments. The shop premises open out onto the street by dint of their large glazed bay windows.

We think that more important than flexibility for the creative collaboration is adaptability.
The ability to tell the same story even when the amount of pages in the book changes. With the knowledge collected having completed hundreds of small and large projects we can deduce that even though we are very proud of what we have accomplished the merit for our best work goes to our clients. They have shared our point of view that we only succeed because we share the same vision and dream. We design spaces, buildings and environments that are comfortable to live and work, pleasant to the eye and sustainable. We are creative design and architectural group, we want to create an inclusive world all around us - Piece by Piece.
