A hotel with 150 rooms was designed and built in an old office building located at Helsinki Airport.
Its location between the Hilton Helsinki Airport hotel and Terminal 2 makes it an ideal option for
travellers staying the night. It is also located close to a railway station. The hotel is connected
to the terminal by a covered walkway. In the design, particular attention was paid to damp control.
Because of the air traffic noise, the project involved challenging acoustics requirements. The design
and construction project was complicated by the fact that several functions, including aerial navigation,
health services, and police operations, were active on the premises throughout the project. Of the
old structures, only the load-bearing elements
and the building envelope were preserved.
