Dance House Helsinki
combines simplicity, surprises and playfulness
August 17, 2017
Dance House Helsinki will open its doors in 2020 at the Cable Factory in Helsinki. The architectural look of the house is now revealed and is called “Kite”.
A kite that defies gravity. Industrial and robust. A machine rooted to the earth. A magical box that is not ready before it is filled with dance.
Designing the architectural look of Dance House Helsinki was not about a fancy exterior, but combining old with new from a functionality perspective, the architects describe. Materials include polished aluminum, rusted steel and brass-colored aluminum screw mesh.
This simplicity is flavoured with details that open up in different ways the more you enter the house. If the first impression is heavy and robust, the catch is in the huge, almost 20 x 20 m wall of steel that seems to float in the air. Some of the exterior walls are mirrored, creating a unique magic experience and melting the building into its surroundings.
