U.S. Embassy - Helsinki

Helsinki, Finland

Project Description

Page Southerland Page, LLP is providing professional design services for an over $80M renovation and new construction to this exceptional embassy located in an urban environment, as part of B.L. Harbert International, LLC’s design/build team. Perched on a peninsula in a historic part of Helsinki, the U.S. Embassy compound enjoys a panoramic view of the Gulf of Finland.

The first US Embassy building to achieve LEED Platinum, The Innovation Center is now updated and renovated to address badly needed life-safety and accessibility upgrades plus major repairs to this existing office building. These renovations are the first of three phases of work. In the second phase a dramatic sweeping new classified building concept gives a state of the art presence while meeting current security requirements and growth needs. The new terrace and glass lobby spanning between the historic office building and the new addition serves as a pleasant vantage point to enjoy this bucolic environment. The final phase renovates and alters the original chancery and ambassador’s residence, which was built in 1938 for US Embassy mission.
