We Land – a unique piece of office architecture

The Helsinki district of Ruoholahti’s maritime location and its history inspired architect Juha Mäki-Jyllilä when he started designing the We Land office building in 2018: “From the start, our aim was architecture that suits its surrounding urban setting dominated by large buildings, but gives it a new, fresh look.”

We Land will be completed in the spring but the exterior already looks finished. The building is easy to spot on Porkkalankatu, near the Cable Factory arts center, and only a few blocks away from Ruoholahti metro station. JKMM Architects’ founding partner, architect Juha Mäki-Jyllilä says that from the outset the We Land site in Ruoholahti felt small but also visible and central.
