At Korjaamo Culture Factory, people, events and media mix together seamlessly. A former tram depot located in Töölö, Helsinki, is a relaxed meeting point for the city people. In the spaces old and new layers melt together as an innovative environment.
The aim was to let the street culture into the building and to diffuse the border of outer and inner space. “The main street” goes through the building and houses all the different activities such as a colorful combination of offices, restaurant, art gallery, performance venue, courtyard and lounge - practically all culture under a single roof.
