Cumulus Hakaniemi

We designed a new Cumulus hotel chain branch in the 1956 bank building situated next to Hakaniementori. The building was renovated throughout.

The light construction and building technology got renewed. Only the protected chopper facade facing the Hakaniementori marketplace and the main staircase were left untouched. The first floor got the hotel reception and retail space. A restaurant and office space was situated on the second floor. Also, new escalators were built to help access to the second floor.
