Partanen & Lamusuo Ltd. designed the renovation of so called “parallelogram” –building and “The Cube” –building as well as new connecting corridor between these buildings. The new expansion building called “Pilleri” glass surface is decorated by façade artwork called “Justice, Fairness and Equality”, providing much needed expansion space for the employees.

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.
