ALA is a Helsinki-based architecture firm seeking fresh angles, flowing forms and surprising solutions on all levels of architecture.
We challenge ourselves to provide options, develop prototypes and look for innovations. We believe in creating beauty with a design approach which combines the intuitive with the analytic and the practical with the extravagant.
The office started as a four-man, after-hours competition team in 2004. Our first major project, the Performing Arts Centre “Kilden” in Kristiansand, Norway, was completed in 2011.
We currently employ over 20 people in Finland and Norway, with projects ranging from underground stations to housing areas, high-rise developments and culture venues.
