Meander topping-out ceremony was held – architect Steven Holl participated in the festivities.
Construction work on Newil & Bau’s Meander residential building is progressing on schedule, and the building has reached its topping-out ceremony. The magnificent shape of the building and its rising roof are beginning to take form. The father of Meander’s design, American architect Steven Holl, participated in the topping-out ceremony.
Meander, located in Töölönlahti, has achieved its topping-out ceremony. Currently, the courtyard deck is being poured, on top of which garden-like courtyard areas will be created.
“It’s a pleasure to see that the winning design of the architectural competition held in 2006 has progressed to the topping-out ceremony. The building gradually rises from within the urban block towards the sea view, giving shape to the courtyard garden areas. It creates a spiritual connection between the garden areas and the sea view,” describes Steven Holl.
“The construction work of Meander is proceeding according to the planned schedule,” says Newil & Baun’s CEO, Petri Ylivuori. “The highest section of the building, the cast-in-place concrete structure of staircase A, reaching over 35 meters in height, was completed just in time for the topping-out ceremony. The structural work is also progressing in the B and C sections of the building. In the fall, the construction of the glass facade framing the wooden facade will begin, and there will be a balcony zone available to residents between the facades,” Ylivuori explains the progress of the construction work.
