Interior Architect Annika Nemlander
Annika Nemlander is a Helsinki based interior architect with over a decade of experience in the interior design industry in Finland, England and the United Arab Emirates. She works at all scales and in all sectors whether it be new build or renovation. 

In any design project her ultimate goal is to find the golden balance between three key elements: practicality, aesthetics and innovation. Annika aspires to create interiors that change clients’ lives by helping them achieve their own goals in the spaces, whether by being more productive, satisfied or inspired. By creating wow-effects with her designs she encourages other people to push their own limits and think with an open-mind.
