The works are located in the staircases and by the walkway passing through the block. The works in 9 staircases are made of hand-made ceramic tiles which feature the landscape of Arabianranta, the encounter between water and soil. This is a method of bringing the surrounding landscape inside the building. The walls of the distribution substation in the yard and the staircases are clad with specially made, red-clay brick. The stories on the bricks describe bicycling and are collected from people of different ages.
