Event description:
Viehe123 is a co-built and co-managed three-house block which comprises of youth housing, student housing and housing for artists. By building the house block in collaboration, the partners were able to provide the residents with substantially better facilities. By combining private homes with shared spaces, the partners’ overarching goal was to improve the quality of life of the residents and to enable every-day cross-generational encounters between residents. In order to create a functional community, the partners have explored practices that support smooth co-living and residents’ interaction and offer them opportunities to develop their surroundings.  

This is a laid-back afternoon with a showcase of common facilities and activities and sharing know-how on how to create functional communities. The tour ends with refreshments at the roof top terrace. Residents take active part in designing this event.

Starting point address: Viehe 123 block, Hermannin rantatie 17, 00580 Helsinki
