In the vicinity of the Otaniemi University Campus area designed by famed Finnish architect Alvar Aalto is also located these headquarters built in the 1980s. The design for the project was chosen through an invited competition. Juska Junttila was the architect in charge throughout the project from the early competition entry all the way to the final completion of the building.
Originally the building housed Finnoil Co’s headquarters, nowadays the premises are occupied by Gasum Co. The original building complex included a west wing and a gas station, both of which were later pulled down to make way for a new motorway of the expanding Greater Helsinki metropolitan area.
