Welfare Centre Onni with Wooden Exterior and Interior Design

Here are some pictures of Welfare Centre Onni with Wooden in Exterior and Interior Design.
Pukkila is a small municipality (population 2000) in southern Finland, 100 km from Helsinki. The Welfare Centre Onni was possible only because of one man, Onni Nurmi, who was born and lived his early ages in Pukkila. In his last will he ordered that his assets – comprising Nokia shares – were to be put to use for recreational purposes for the elderly. The result of his gift was a design competition 2004 and the centre was ready 2008.

The Welfare Centre Onni includes sheltered housing units for physically handicapped elderly people and group homes for people with memory disorders, a health centre, rehabilitation and utility services for all residents of the municipality, complements the block of buildings surrounding the market square in the centre of Pukkila and gives a completely new face to the village centre.

This Student House is designed by Emmanuel Combarel Dominique Marrec Architectes, located in Epinay sur seine, France.
The 9,000 sq m project encompasses three areas spread over four buildings: a residence for students of 150 housing units for 170 residents, 19 housing units for researchers or invited professors and housing for women in distress. Conjoining the separate units allows for a coeducation of experiences at the human scale. Shared spaces include laundry facilities, internal and external relaxation space and gardens planted with fruit trees.

The design for this student housing project by emmanuel combarel dominique marrec architectes integrates the history of Saint leu, Epinay sur seine, and its transformations to assert the manners and the qualities ‘to reveal the poetry of the place’ say the architects. Being central to the regeneration of the district the project articulates the split up territory by revealing two faces, an industrialist, unified exterior facade, offering a ‘politeness’ to the existing town planning, and the colourful community encased within.
