A year of development work

The City Hall lobby was closed at the end of September 2018, when the renovation started. The renovation of the new lobby lasted about a year in total.

The lobby has been made into a joint workspace for residents, visitors and City employees alike, in which the future of Helsinki is developed. The concept brings up the City brand and the City Strategy, as well as Helsinki's vision of being the most Functional City in the World.

The new lobby concept has been developed by residents, City employees and interest groups. The architectural values and conservation perspectives have been paid attention to in the reconstruction works.

After the opening day, the lobby will be open on weekdays from 8 AM to 6 PM. The opening hours may vary due to events.

Detailed information about the new lobby concept will be published on the opening day.
