The apartment building Vantaan Brankkari was built on a site where a fire station once stood. The architect chose the colour of the building to resemble the colour of a fire engine and we took the it further to create a joyful image that resembled the idea. 

“That’s how we worked the fire hoses, it was like dancing”, said the firefighters who attended the opening ceremony.
