Central themes of the proposal were extending the genius loci of the east Lauttasaari port area and the grouping the new buildings, so that as many as possible apartments will have a sea view and at the same time a favorable positioning towards the sun. Another important aspect was to not to block the sea views of existing neighboring houses.

The design uses elongated building masses, whichare perpendicular to the shoreline. At the shore the buildings are low and extend on columns over the surface of the sea. Further away from the waterfront the numbers of the storeys grow incrementally.

The area is divided into zones parallel to the shore: a public pier and pedestrian zone, green yard zone, a free-form street yard and furthest away garages and adjoining street region. The facades are mainly of white plaster and copper. Wood has been used in the rear walls and ceilings of the balconies and overhead projections.

Housing design has focused on the flexible floor plans in addition to lightness, airiness and views. Large balconies and roof terraces will contribute to improving the opportunities to enjoy the area's unique situation. Garage is located below the yard. Parking space is available for 272cars. The total area of floor-space is 25 820m².
