Our long history
Kasarmikatu 25 is one of the few protected buildings from the 19th century in the heart of Helsinki. The next phase in this rich history is a complete revival that will bring the building back to its place as the glorious pearl of central Helsinki.
Large residential buildings became more common in the 1870’s and much more were build in the 1880’s and 1890’s. This trend was inspired by the architecture of Central European cities. One by one, the old low-rise buildings and wooden houses in Kluuvi, Kaartinkaupunki and Kamppi were demolished to make way for brand new stone palaces.
