Alma Media Headquarters

The Töölönlahti area in Helsinki is best known for its landmark buildings, such as Eliel Saarinen´s railway station and Alvar Aalto’s Finlandia Hall.

The challenge of the new headquarters for Alma Media was to create a modern building that is in step with the times. The office spaces are based on a modern, flexible working environment supporting an open, interactive operating model.

The central spatial element of the building is the entrance hall which continues all the way into the core of the building creating a space that is split in two.
