Built to house 1800 Kesko employees, the modern building – designed by JKMM Architects – is Finland’s first office to go carbon neutral in its waste management.
The multi-use workspace, dubbed K-Kampus, is spread across four and a half floors each consisting of 4000sq metres.

While each floor has its own theme and distinguishing colour scheme, overall the HQ champions an ‘Nuanced New Nordic’ aesthetic: a workplace where modernity and flexibility go hand in hand.
In traditional Scandinavian style well-being remains very much at the heart of JKMM’s project with an emphasis on aspects such as the provision of natural light.
This dedication to quality of life within the office environment also extends to JKMM’s selection of materials and furnishings.
With lighting by renowned brands such as Louis Poulsen, Moooi and Wästberg and furniture by design titans including Artek, Hay and Norman Copenhagen, K-Group have spared no expense on their new HQ.
As well as being Finland’s first office building to integrate carbon neutral waste management, K-Kampus also holds BREEAM and WWF’s Green Office environmental certificates.
In K-Kampus, JKMM have not only created a workplace that is not only environmentally friendly but also socially responsible.
