The OOPEAA Seinäjoki Office is moving

posted on May 31st 2019 in News

On June 1, 2019 the OOPEAA Seinäjoki Office is moving to new premises in a central location in downtown in Seinäjoki. The new space is on the street level and features large windows opening to the street. That allows the work of the office to take on a visible presence in the life of the city. It also makes it possible for the office to actively engage with the city around it.

 

The new location of the office is well in line with the work that OOPEAA is currently doing on developing the vision for the future Seinäjoki city center. One of the guiding principles of the vision is the goal of activating the center. This shall be done by building a balanced mix of a variety of uses from residential to services, and from offices to spaces for retail, restaurants and cafes along with a street scape that supports walking and bicycling and creates an enjoyable environment of green spaces and places to spend time in both indoors and outdoors in the downtown area of the city.

 

The central downtown location of the new office also offers a valuable opportunity to connect with the history of the city. From the new OOPEAA office one has a view to the Southern Ostrobothnia Civil Guard Headquarters building (Suojeluskuntatalo), the first public work of Alvar Aalto, built in 1924-1926 in the neoclassicist style of the 1920s with features from functionalism and from local Ostrobothnian building traditions.

 

The new address of the OOPEAA Seinäjoki Office is

 

Kauppakatu 19 A

Seinäjoki

 

We welcome you to informally drop by to visit us in the new premises!
