High ceilings and spaces flooded with light

"Back in 2011 we were looking for an inspiring and creative environment for our new Helsinki office: with Merikortteli that is exactly what we got!"

An industrial icon

Merikortteli was completed during the 1920s when it was designed specifically for producing telephone cables for the Finnish telephone network. The ring-shaped plan allowed long cables to be worked on in a continuous loop around the building.

Merikortteli became the first multi-tenant building in Finland, and by the 1950s was the home to Finnish light-bulb manufacturer Airam. During this period Airam developed lighting for the 1952 Olympic Stadium, including that used for the score board.

Later, Merikortteli was home to many legendary Finnish organisations, including ABB, Kone and Nokia. Rumour has it that Nokia’s decision to pursue electronics was taken here. Today an eclectic mix of dozens of organisations thrive in Merikortteli, and together form a unique working community.
