Nokia’s new Oulu campus

ALA is designing a new campus for Nokia in Oulu, northern Finland. The project includes office, lab, as well as production facilities. The office half of the bipartite campus will consist of eight floors of flexible office space suitable for both current and future working methods whereas the 2-story-tall industrial half will be a large flexible hall with a gallery running through it. In the heart of the campus, located in between the two halves, will be the restaurant intended for all employees. ALA is additionally designing the smart energy center located next door. The energy center will provide the cooling required for the operations on the campus.

The campus is slated for completion in 2025.
