Extension of the National Museum of Finland

Extension of the National Museum of Finland

Our proposal for the open competition for an extension of the National Museum of Finland.
Our plan respects the original plan of the museum site's park and gets it's architecture from the park's geometry. The roof's grass surface acts like an outside showroom, a grandstand for city occurrences, or as a stage, a place for picnics and a living room for citizens.

Our work includes developing, studying and producing architectural projects that answer the client’s needs in a unique, cost-efficient, rational and aesthetically pleasing synthesis.

The design process consists of analysing the special features of each site and program. Our Architecture grows from hard work and a high level of commitment. We believe that the only way to build sustainable cities and buildings is to use real solid materials, solve all the functions in a flawless way and give every space and building its own unique appearance – a soul.
