The Lumo One skyscraper combines sustainability and comfort

In designing the Lumo One skyscraper, we have emphasised sustainability, a strong sense of community and convenience in daily life. Together, these factors enable the best customer experience. When completed, Lumo One in Helsinki’s Kalasatama district will be the tallest rental apartment building in Finland.

When completed, the 31-storey Lumo One skyscraper in Helsinki’s Kalasatama district will be the tallest rental apartment building in Finland. This unique property is situated at the crossroads of nature and the urban environment. Its impressive views, comprehensive services and diverse transport connections have attracted a great deal of interest among its future residents throughout the construction project. For Team Leader Janita Matilainen and her New Development Team, the enthusiasm for the property has been reflected in daily contacts.

“The Lumo brand offers the best customer experience in housing, and this property represents that in a unique way. Many of our customers have told us that they decided to move to this building very early on. They have kept in touch with us to make sure they stay involved in the process. Nevertheless, we started renting the apartments at the same time for everyone in January 2022,” Matilainen says.

Our marketing activities for the Lumo One skyscraper have been carried out in several stages because the building will also be completed in two phases. The residents of apartments on floors 6–13 will be able to move into their new homes next summer. The rest will get to move in a little bit later, in autumn 2022, when the building is fully completed.

In designing the Lumo One skyscraper, our focus from the outset has been on sustainability, community and convenience. Sustainability targets are reflected in the practical solutions employed at the property, including effective waste sorting, an energy-efficient shared sauna and the opportunity to make use of car sharing and a bicycle parking area for over 500 bicycles. Through the My Lumo service, the residents of the property can rent common areas for private events or make a sauna reservation, for example.

Large windows increase comfort in all of the apartments in the skyscraper by letting in plenty of daylight. To provide a pleasant home for everyone interested in the property, we have used a wide range of interior design styles and materials. We have shaken up the conventional forms of housing by adding innovative green rooms to the property.

“Instead of a balcony, each apartment will have a fully insulated green room with a floor-to-ceiling window that can be used as a flower garden or to grow herbs and vegetables, for example. The glazed doors can be bundled to partition the green corner into a separate space similar to a balcony, or it can even be used as additional living space,” Matilainen explains.
