Frequently Asked Questions

Anssi Lassila originally founded the office under the name Lassila Malmberg Architects in Oulu in 2000 / 2001 following the success in the student competition for the Kärsämäki Shingle Church in 1998-1999 and in an open competition for the Klaukkala Church in 2000. Both projects were completed in 2004. Following the completion of these two early projects in 2004, Anssi moved the office to Seinäjoki and Teemu Hirvilammi joined as a minor partner. During this time an idea about a peripheral sensitivity as a part of the creative process begun to mature. In 2014 Lassila Hirvilammi Architects changed its name to OOPEAA – Office For Peripheral Architecture.
