Merikortteli is a grand industrial building that is now mainly used as office space, located in the vibrant Punavuori area of Helsinki. This rugged 28,000m² building occupies an entire city block. High ceilings and a robust industrial structure give the building an incredible character, something that is enjoyed by the dozens of organisations that occupy the building’s six office floors. Merikortteli is surrounded by a lively urban environment, including cafes, bars, restaurants and small independent retailers, as well as historic residential buildings. The building is also served well by public transport, parks and coastal paths. Merikortteli is occupied by designers, creatives, consulting firms and media companies, many of whom enjoy networking and collaborating with the rest of the community. Events and a sense of belonging unite the tenants; no wonder many of them are passionate about their home!
