Workspace Oy as Architects

Creative design agency hasan& co. moved its office into a preserved functionalist hall from 1940 located in Vallila, Helsinki. Design agency Workspace created a concept and design to support the work of designers, to attract customers and new design talents as well as to invite remote working designers to come back to the office.

hasan& co.’s new premises in the 1940’s concrete arch hall were completed in the middle of the pandemia. The main business driver for the move was to bring all the hasan& co. business units into one place. The hasan& co. teams used to work in a maze-like building and now the physical barriers between the teams needed to go. The new premises were set to act as a user interface for creativity, synergies and teamwork.

Delicately transforming a preserved historic building serving a new purpose is part of the re-use thinking related to old buildings that can be seen throughout Helsinki nowadays. The original esthetics and the future purpose of the building stated clear boundaries on space design.

The office space renewal was designed to wake up the functionalist spirit in the building and to update the premises for modern work. Emphasis was placed on the overall look respecting the history, industrial design details as well as lighting to highlight the art hall feeling and acoustics to enable good working conditions.

Different zones were utilized in the design and the design work itself was carried in co-operation with the hasan& co. teams. The space sequences were allocated in such a way that customers enter directly into the middle of action.

Versatile and alternating movable furniture was a key tool in all the spaces. Custom fixed furniture was also used. Sustainable development principles of hasan& co were utilized also in furniture sourcing and second-hand furniture was well used. Materials and colours followed the lines of fixed interior solutions.
