Slightest obstruction and polished lines

Edifici industriali in metallo

The tower with its glass façade stands out like a monument in the centre of Helsinki.

The steel structure supporting the windows is almost wholly invisible. The slender columns placed inside the façade create a levelled surface with no obstruction to the internal designing.

The structure is completed by columns and mixed beams for the floor. This allows to get levelled intradoses, which can house services with complete freedom and the minimum building depth.
