Centre Information The impressive wooden concert and congress centre rose on the Vesijärvi waterfront in spring 2000. Its architects, Hannu Tikka and Kimmo Lintula, explained that the main source of inspiration in the design was Finnish forests. The forest always provided our ancestors with nourishment and raw materials, but it also involves mythical memories and scents – it has a relaxing essence. Another natural starting point in the design came from the industrial history of the site, the uncomplicated aesthetics of the old brick buildings, and the vicinity of water.

The Sibelius Hall complex, with an area of nearly 90,000 m3, is composed of four elements: the renovated Carpenter’s Factory, the hall building, the Forest Hall (linking these elements together), and the Congress Wing (which is connected to the complex via a glass passage). Wood is the supporting material in all the new sections.
