3rd floor Kallio foyer and lobby


Area: 181 m² Floor: 3

The eastern historic working-class city district of Kallio is known for its special ambience. On the journey through Hakaniemi, Siltasaari, Kallio, Alppila and Vallila, perhaps on the legendary number 3 tram, we witness an urban mosaic of the past and the present: the lively chatter at Kahvisiskot marquee café at the Hakaniementori market, the shouts and whistle blowing during a game of ice-bandy at Brahenkenttä sports ground, the endearing presence of The Bear on the Anthill statue (Jussi Mäntynen, 1931) in Karhupuisto park.

This varied and colourful history of the surrounding district of Kallio has served as the inspiration for the design of the Kallio conference rooms at Paasitorni. Paying tribute to the history of the district and people of Kallio is the permanent exhibition of the noted street photographer Kasperi Kropsu, whose work parallels that of Henri Cartier-Bresson. The light and metal tube installations referencing Kallio and its iconic landmarks bring added character to the space.

The spacious foyer can be used for event registration, a small-scale exhibition as well as coffee breaks and cocktail parties, serving all the events rooms on the 3rd floor (Room 301, Karhupuisto, Brahenkenttä and Hakaniementori). With its visual references to the surrounding district of Kallio, the Kallio group of spaces provides a unique setting for various special events.

The stair landing leading to the foyer can also be used for event registration or additional exhibition space.
