A modern and customer-oriented new construction will be planned for the Central Hospital of South Karelia. Several artworks will be realised in the interiors and exteriors of the new hospital. Art will define a considerable part of the hospital’s general appearance and spatial solutions. The artworks will be integrated as a natural part of the architecture and the interior design. As an aid in this will be used the Art Formula developed by Partanen & Lamusuo Ltd. which facilitates the implementation of art in a hospital milieu. The locations, the size category and the materials used, for example, are predefined for artworks in the Art Formula. The final design, appearance and realisation of the artworks are commissioned to an artist to be selected separately.

The art project gives many different artists the opportunity to participate in the design of the appearance of the hospital spaces. The Art Formula is a new kind of method of planning and implementing art in public spaces. It aims at creating for the customer a different and experiential visiting experience in the hospital. The art found around you takes your thoughts away from the hospital environment, relaxes the visitor and quickens the healing process.

We think that more important than flexibility for the creative collaboration is adaptability.
The ability to tell the same story even when the amount of pages in the book changes. With the knowledge collected having completed hundreds of small and large projects we can deduce that even though we are very proud of what we have accomplished the merit for our best work goes to our clients. They have shared our point of view that we only succeed because we share the same vision and dream. We design spaces, buildings and environments that are comfortable to live and work, pleasant to the eye and sustainable. We are creative design and architectural group, we want to create an inclusive world all around us - Piece by Piece.
