Easton Commercial Center / Lahdelma & Mahlamäki Architects

Easton offers 30,000 m2 of commercial floor space which is set to bring 40 businesses into the area, with the emphasis being put on healthy foods and creating an everyday social atmosphere around this. The more varied commercial activities situated around the food focus on the everyday needs of locals. At the same time lobbies, child play parks and ?recharge? areas look to create a social buzz around the center. The shopping center stands in the heart of Itäkeskus and marks the first step towards a larger urban strategy aimed at bringing value and increased opportunities to the local residents; as well as giving a home to local food culture and everyday social life.

?We created Easton as a new kind of city center for Itäkeskus, somewhere that could celebrate the community and daily life,? explains Ilmari Lahdelma, co-founder of Lahdelma & Mahlamäki Architects. ?Shopfronts which open to the Kauppakartanonkatu bring life to the pedestrian level and join the existing community with the new shops, everyday amenities, social lounges and the food hall.? In keeping with strict local requirements, Lahdelma & Mahlamäki progressed the call for a red brick façade into a gently undulating ceramic and aluminum tiling system which, whilst conforming with the local aesthetic, also allows Easton to stand out and become a beacon of development within the area. 120 tiles of varying shades ? computer sequenced to appear random ? come together to make the façade units, which w...
