Following a year of development work, the lobby of the Helsinki City Hall opened today with a brand new concept. The lobby is now a place for everyone who is interested in the city and its future.

The renovated lobby can be used for many purposes, such as an office or a space for events, meetings and workshops.

We interviewed Päivi Hietanen, design manager at Helsinki City, about the the new concept, and we also got a first-hand tour around the lobby for our video.
