After years of work with some of the finest historical buildings in the center of Helsinki, we have now the masterpiece of Theodor Höijer in Erottaja on our drawing board. The so called Tullihallitus House and a jugend building adjacent to it are being converted into offices and restaurants. If one listens carefully, the arias of the famous opera singer Aino Ackté can still be heard in the stately halls of Höijer's neo-renaissance building. We welcome this design assignement with excitement and reverence! The buildings are the property of the American investment management corporation Blackrock, which functions also as the builder in the project.
