JK5 / Interactive Chalkboards

JK5
JK5

Junailijankuja 5 in Pasila, Helsinki provides a home for 220 foreign exchange students. For many of them the building is their first home as well as their first touch to Finland.

We created two interactive spaces with a little colorful chalkboard paint and some bold typography that help the housing interiors become part of the architecture and a vibrant space for living.

The building became immediately an interactive participant in the student community: “talking” to the residents, encouraging them to get to know each other and do things together, creating a unique environment they can call their own.
