KONKRET Oy is a Helsinki-based architecture practice founded in 1997 providing architectural, urban planning, interior and furniture design services. We are part of Finnish design and consulting firm AINS Group (A-Insinöörit) and a member of the Association of Finnish Architects’ Offices (ATL).
We create innovative and enduring architecture. This translates as attractive living and working places, tailored to our client’s specific needs, and a high quality built environment. We believe focusing on high quality design is a valuable investment, which helps our clients to succeed. Decisions made at design stage play an important role in determining a building’s future environmental impact.
Our services include architectural and principal design services for new builds as well as renovation and conversion projects. We carry out preliminary design schemes, proposals for amendments to detailed city plans and studies into alternative uses for sites all with the aim of creating a vibrant and attractive city and environment.
A digitalised design process improves the management of information and costing of the different stages of the life of a building. We work with building information modelling (BIM), which enables us to compare different options effectively and cost-efficiently.
