Short description

The architecture of Riverstone Residence presents Kipsala neighbouring building stylistics, special environment and referable circumstances. One of the features refers to construction height that must not exceed the height of three storeys, moreover, the third storey by its area should not be greater than two thirds of   the second storey. Hence, on the upper storey of the building the spacious terraces are located. 

The architecture of two-level building depended on the relief of a certain site. The building is located on elevation, but its lower part required a support wall, which supports the main structure and save relief for descent to parking area that is located in the basement of the building. 

The building is connected to the central water supply system of the city. Each apartment has cold and hot water meters. A special attention is paid to the quality of water supply and heating pipes. It is a crucial factor because after casting into the building structure their substitution in case of accident requires extremely serious repairs. Uponor PE-Xa pipes are used in heating and water supply systems.

Underfloor cooling adds value to new construction

Postitalo, the former post office building in downtown Tampere, got a new look in 2017 when it was renovated into new commercial premises and a block of flats was built on top. The heat distribution system of choice was Uponor's underfloor heating and cooling system, which was installed in all flats.
