Bob W Kamppi, secured in collaboration with real estate partner Slättö, sits in an area of Helsinki that is known as the heart of the Finnish music scene where more than half of the city's live music venues are situated. Kamppi is a cultural melting pot of creativity and is home to many museums, record companies and music festival headquarters - the Urho Kekkosen Katu stretch has even been nicknamed 'Rock and Roll Street'.In keeping with a growing trend in the repurposing of commercial buildings, Bob W Kamppi is a former office block that will be transformed into stylish apartments set around an inner courtyard with a rooftop sauna lounge, in a prime location. Office to hospitality conversions are bringing new life to cities, a movement that Bob W is a true advocate of with projects such as Kamppi and others across Europe.Opening in 2025, Bob W Kamppi's mixture of studios and one-bedroom units will have an interior concept designed by local design agency KOKO3, uniquely merging the building's 70s raw architecture with modern Finnish design. A colour palette inspired by the local neighbourhood blends with statement design pieces, while locally sourced artworks, a signature of the Bob W brand, capture Kamppi's essence. Collaborations from renowned contemporary Finnish designers Vaarni & Basta feature in coworking spaces, in the rooftop lounge and in the sauna facilities, showcasing a mix of nostalgia and modernity.As a climate-neutral hospitality provider, Bob W's extensive renovation of this office building has the environment at its core. In partnership with renowned sustainability experts Avarrus Architects, a firm that was shortlisted for Finland's highest architectural award, the vision for Bob W Kamppi is to preserve the building's original 1970's essence, while significantly elevating its sustainability credentials and functionality. Refurbishment plans include advanced, eco-friendly HVAC systems, energy efficient windows replacements, roof repairs, a renovated parking deck and the integration of solar energy solutions, all aligning to achieve LEED gold certification, the highest sustainability standards in the green building rating system.
