ASMO JAAKSI, TEEMU KURKELA, SAMULI MIETTINEN & JUHA MÄKI-JYLLILÄ
JKMM Architects is a group of architects and designers based in Helsinki, Finland. We started in 1998 with four founding partners – Asmo Jaaksi, Teemu Kurkela, Samuli Miettinen and Juha Mäki-Jyllilä. Today, we are a team of more than 70 people.
We offer a complete service across all areas and scales from architecture to interiors and furniture design. Over the years we have won 88 prizes in design competitions, including 42 first prizes, making us one of Finland’s most successful architectural offices.
Our work is rooted in simplicity, craftsmanship and experimentation. We believe the best solutions are often disarmingly simple. Distinctive architecture is the result of uncompromising pursuit of quality – as well as flexibility and improvisation. Quality is also about putting people first. We see ourselves as craftspeople: architectural beauty is the outcome of the exquisite treatment of materials.
