VetreaElo Veikko is a care facility offering housing services for disabled persons. The building is situated in Lahti and houses a total of 21 residences. The VetreaElo concept focuses on the individual's well-being and independent living. Each resident's flat has its own WC and bathroom and a reservation for a kitchenette.

It has been of primary importance to make the care house homelike and comfortable. The interiors are roomy and bright, accompanied by pleasant acoustics and a calming colour environment. The outdoor environment has been enhanced with plant design and by creating passages and paths in the vicinity of the care house. The aim is to make the surroundings of the building stimulating and agreeable all year round.

The nature theme has been brought also inside the building as large-scale nature inspired wallpapers in common spaces, warm wood tones and backdrop of green plants. The theme continues as bright colored bulletin boards and accent walls in the private rooms.

We think that adaptability is more important than flexibility when it comes to creative collaboration.
The ability to tell the same story, even if the amount of pages in the book would change. With the experience of hundreds of both 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 can succeed only because we share the same vision and dream. We design spaces, buildings and environments that are comfortable to live and work in, pleasant to the eye and sustainable. We are a creative design and architecture office, we want to create an inclusive world all around us - Piece by Piece.
