Karhupuisto is a bright and modern space refurbished in summer 2022. It is suitable for seminars, training events, meetings and workshops. The eye-catching graphic wall portrays the well-known landmark of the Kallio district, Karhupuisto park with its iconic sculptures. Paasitorni’s Karhupuisto room has beautiful views over Eläintarhanlahti bay.
If necessary, Karhupuisto can be connected with the adjoining Brahenkenttä and additionally extended with Hakaniementori. The spacious foyer is ideal for event catering and small-scale exhibitions. With its visual references to the surrounding district of Kallio, the Kallio group of spaces provides a unique setting for various special events.
The Kallio conference rooms
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.
