About

Finland is known for the picturesque landscapes that cover the hills of this beautiful country.

The Koli Nature Centre Ukko was created to highlight the heritage sites of Eastern Finland and showcases the natural environment, geological features and the rich culture of this region in a variety of ways.  

 

Challenge

Our task was redesign and manufacture the Koli Nature Centre Ukko visitor area and add an exhibition section that encourages all visitors to go for a hike in the Koli National Park to experience it first hand.  

Highlight

We are very proud of the final result, which manages to take the beautiful natural inspiration of the Koli region and transforms it into an interior architecture solution and a design language that feels natural acts as an extension of the region.
