Taivallahti Barracks

A nursing home and a convenience store in the Taivallahti Barracks.

The barracks of the Taivallahti Truck Company is a masterpiece of the functionalism of the 1930s and a complex protected by the local detailed plan. Significant changes were made in the building as the premises were re-designed to house a nursing home and a supermarket. The complex became a block that offers a variety of services: a restaurant, business premises, the administrative office of the Töölö parish and a youth community centre. The design process carried out in close collaboration with the premises’ users and authorities resulted in a block that preserved the characteristics of the building with a fresh look.
