Flexible premises, timeless quality

  • Award-winning architecture

    The Itämerentorni was completed in 2000. It was built by Sitra, the Finnish Innovation Fund, to serve as the head office. The building was designed by architect Pekka Helin and its architecture has won awards both in Finland and abroad. Its facade combines weatherproof, recyclable steel and glass. In 2000, the Itämerentorni won the Steel Structure of the Year award granted by professionals in the field.

  • An eco-efficient building

    Special attention has been paid to the environmental impact of the Itämerentorni. In recent years, its water and energy consumption and carbon footprint have been reduced by several dozen per cent. Waste has been reduced through more efficient recycling, and renewable electricity is used in the building. The building is connected to district heating and to a district cooling system that makes use of cold water from the bottom of the sea. The Itämerentorni has been awarded LEED for Existing Buildings certification at the Silver level.

  • Flexible floors plans

    The office floors have been designed to flexibly adapt to various types of floor plans. Each floor has 380 square metres of space, which can be used as an open-plan office or divided into individual office rooms. Modern activity-based office solutions are also possible, due to the locations of the technical building systems and windows. Any changes to the floor plan are designed in cooperation with the tenant.

  • High-quality surface materials

    Timeless, high-quality surface materials have been used in the lobby and shared facilities. The facilities were designed and built according to refined and impressive image. Natural stone, metal and glass were used to create an atmosphere of classic style and high quality.
