K-kampus is located in Kalastama, a new district close to the city center of Helsinki. After harbour moved out, Kalasatama is rapidly developing the seafront into a modern urban residential and commercial district. K-Kampus is the head offices for Kesko, the biggest retailing conglomerate in Finland.
K-Kampus fills one whole urban block , which gave the possibility to develop the best possible concept for working: modern flexible campus gathered around a glazed atrium space. The building also acts as a showroom for Kesko’s products and services. The architecture of K-Kampus reflects Kesko values. It is about functionality and sustainability. The aim was to reinterpret Nordic architectural tradition, use authentic materials and holistic approach to detailing.
The building has strong focus on innovative sustainable principles.
