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.


Happy Midsummer!

During last two weeks Felix Breton, PhD Student from Spain, and Amos Ilonen, our summer help and model builder, joined the team. It was a pleasure to work with them both and we hope to see them back in the office someday again :)


Talli Summer Excursion with Juha Leiviskä

This year Talli's summer excursion was a special one. We had the pleasure to spend the day with Architect Juha Leiviskä. Together with his former employee Architect Micki Schnitzler we were introduced to some of his works and enjoyed listening to the stories behind them. The day came to an end with a spontaneous piano concert by Architect Leiviskä at the concert hall of Sandels Cultural Centre in Töölö.
