Founded in 1997, partners Professor Ilmari Lahdelma, architect SAFA and Professor Rainer Mahlamäki, architect SAFA. The partners have been working together since 1985. The total number of employees is approximately 25.

Our team has extensive experience in all aspects of architecture: public buildings, residential buildings, renovation projects, urban planning as well as interior architecture and furniture design. A significant part of our work has started through architectural competitions. In 2017 we have won the Oulu Station Center competition and are invited to the UK Holocaust Memorial competition in London and “The Defence and Siege of Leningrad” museum competition in St Petersburg.

We specialize in public buildings, with design projects ranging from small-scale
kindergartens to libraries and very large cultural centers and university buildings.

The event is part of the Helsinki Design Week Open Studios where Helsinki-based designers open their workrooms for the public during 14 and 15 September. See the participating studios and their schedules here.

The doors to the Architecture offices are open only for the people on the tour.
