A modern new construction flexible to alterations was planned for the Central Hospital of South Karelia. The new construction forms an important central fixed point for the entire hospital, dominating the whole building stock of the hospital area as well as its internal operation. Particular attention is paid to comfort and customer orientation in the planning of the new construction. The building houses the joint emergency duty of primary and special health care, inpatient wards and laboratory spaces.

We think that adaptability is more important than flexibility when it comes to creative collaboration.
The ability to tell the same story, even if the amount of pages in the book would change. With the experience of hundreds of both 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 can succeed only because we share the same vision and dream. We design spaces, buildings and environments that are comfortable to live and work in, pleasant to the eye and sustainable. We are a creative design and architecture office, we want to create an inclusive world all around us - Piece by Piece.
