Espoon Viherpihan Aarre
Residential Concept Design

2021 - 2022

In the fall of 2023 new homes by NREP will be completed in Espoo, Finland. I had the pleasure of designing three different concepts and their material palettes for Asunto Oy Espoon Viherpihan Aarre. The client's wish was to create timeless, high-quality and bolder housing while taking into account environmentally friendly living. The building is also applying for a LEED GOLD environmental certificate.⁠ The concepts are:
Minimalist Japandi: 
"If you love airiness, natural materials and simplicity this is the style for you. Japandi is a harmonious hybrid of Japanese and Scandinavian functionality around which easy living is elevated to the next level."
Earthy Forest:
"Dark and neutral colors create a serene, mystical and understatedly elegant environment. Natural materials exude dignity and timelessness."
 
Joyful Hygge:
"Hygge, this lifestyle inspired by the Danish life wisdom is suitable for a home that exudes joy, fun and warmth, where even the smallest moments of everyday life are treasured. Gentle pastel colors combined with bolder colors create an energetic and fresh space."

Tallberginkatu 2 model space

Office design

2021-2022

The client's, Antilooppi Oy, wishes where to transform this empty 240 m² space in Tallbergintalo into a ready-to-rent office and reference for potential tenants to familiarize themselves with the building's standards and style. The building was completed in the 1930's and the jugend style mint green stucco facade, walnut window frames and rounded shapes where also the inspiration for the interior. Leather, brass, walnut, velvet and lacquered concrete create a rich and warm material palette which only get better with time. Small tactile details such as door handles, sockets and moldings bring a sense of the past to this otherwise modern space.

Kotikonttori Katajanokka 

Co-working space design

2020-2021

”Kotikonttori” meaning home office in the Finnish language is a concept where empty retail spaces on the street level of apartment buildings were turned into co-working spaces for anyone looking for an ergonomic and peaceful place to study or work. There are five different locations around Helsinki, Finland (Kallio, Arabia, Herttoniemi, Jätkäsaari and Katajanokka) and they all have distinctive decors that accentuate their environment and its history. 

 

Kotikonttori Katajanokka (320 m2) drew inspiration from ateliers of the 1920's and 30's as the famous Tove Jansson and Hugo Simberg lived right across the street. This can be seen e.g. in the vintage lamps, rustic wood and rattan textures, antique mirrors and deep jewel colored swede fabrics.

Nordic Morning 

Office design

2015-2017

The new headquarters of Nordic Morning, a Scandinavian communications and publishing company, was opened in Kalasatama's Rantatie Business Park in Helsinki (Hermannin rantatie 8). Architectural design was done by SARC, contracting by YIT and ownership by Lindström Investment. The office is size 3500 m2.

Half of the office was repair construction and half was new construction due to the new extension of the building (Kasvu). The biggest challenge of the project was to unite five subsidiary companies with the parent company under the same roof for the first time. The companies had very different demographics and image profiles, but after many workshops and consulting we developed a fresh and fun activity based office concept which serves the needs of everyone. This mixture of old and new was also reflected in the decor as half of the furniture was re-used and half was bought new.
