The REDI complex at Kalasatama, Helsinki, is Finland’s largest on-going urban construction project. Majakka Tower, which reaches a height of 134 meters, is Finland’s tallest residential building. Its apartments are located above the shopping centre on floors 6–35, ensuring magnificent views over Kalasatama from all levels.

Majakka also offer housing units for various life situations and needs: apartment sizes vary from a 33 square metre two-room unit to a 142.5 square metre luxury apartment on the top floor of the tower. According to the floor, the apartments have three different equipment levels, in addition to which residents can select their preferred colour scheme from three different options.

In total, KG Constructions designed, produced and installed 1,450 colored and technologically different aluminum-glass curtain walls. All glass windows in the building have a very low iron oxide content, which will ensure the transparency of the glass. In addition, each glass stands out with its writing and silk-screen strips.
