OP Financial Group is the leading financial services group in
Scandinavia. Instead of a traditional high-rise office, the company preferred to create a campus-like city block.
The financial sector is in the process of adopting new ways of operating. The goal was to create an architecture that would enable an operational transformation of the OP Financial Group. The campus provides a flexible workplace for 5000 employees with restaurants, meeting rooms and event spaces.
The building’s architecture takes its inspiration from Finnish nature, creating a composition of monolithic stone clad rocks suited to a city scale. The LEED Gold certified project follows the principles of sustainable development including the extensive use of solar energy.
