ARK 4/2020 Features the Conversion of the Old Margarine Factory into Flats

The latest issue of ARK (The Finnish Architectural Review) features Talli's residential project The Old Margarine Factory in Helsinki.
More about the project here.



Our Address Has Changed

Talli has returned from the holidays to new premises in Ratakatu 19, 00120 Helsinki.

We continue to share the address with our long-time collaborators R. Schnitzler and Vilhelm Helander, Juha Leiviskä Architects. Also, we are happy to now have A-Konsultit Architects and Antti Paatero Interior Design as part of our work community. We are looking forward to continuing our collaboration in future projects.   


First prize in Keski-Pasila School Competition !!!

The new Keski-Pasila School will be located in the former railway yards, close to the city centre–accessed in a few minutes by train–in the up-and-coming Keski-Pasila area of Helsinki. Dense residential building will follow shortly. 

"Aurinkokello" ("The Sundial") is the entry of work group Talli Architects, Mer Architects and MASU Landscape Architects. The entry makes good use of the rather small, slanted plot of land and and knits the building well into its surroundings–the red-brick look a nod to the area's past. The school will house 200 nursery children and 1000 school children, and be also used for communal events by the locals. It is versatile, and made with particular attention to life-cycle requirements.

We at Talli are looking forward to continuing the work with Mer Architects, MASU Planning and our own fine group of designers who put together the winning entry. Congratulations to the whole group!

Talli Joins in the Architects' Declaration

Cultural Centre Vernissa Given City´s Approval to Proceed

We are very pleased to tell that the City of Vantaa gave green light to the continuation of refurbishment plans of Vernissa, the old paint factory buildings, as planned by Talli and LOCI Landscape Architects.


Going Strong Despite the Circumstances

We have rearranged our working methods according to present requirements, and projects are proceeding fairly normally. We are all looking forward to the time when we are, again, able to meet in the wonderfully every-day manner of face-to-face. Take care you all!

Autumn News

Talli Architects started the autumn season by visiting the nearby Uunisaari for a sauna and swim. What a beautiful view and location; so close, at one of the small islands off the city coast. Refreshing water, soft wind and lots of laughter.

During the past summer there has been a partial change in the Talli ownership as one of the partners, Architect Pia Ilonen started her own company, ILO Architects. We wish her lots of success and–as predicted by the the name ”ILO”–lots of joy.

The Talli team will continue under the leadership of Minna and Martti Lukander. Our address, associates and company information remain as before. As will, of course, our mission for the development and design of human-centred, high-quality architecture.

We are looking forward to our new projects, and we will keep you posted on what’s up and coming.
