Oodi is a striking building with its glass and steel structures and wooden facade, its design a combination of traditional and contemporary flavours. The energy-efficient library is an impressive calling card for Finnish architecture. ALA Architects is responsible for the architectural planning and YIT is the building contractor.
Service design as part of the planning process
Oodi’s planning process has utilised service design to achieve the best possible customer experience. Service design was used in the design of the signs and furniture, as well as the placement of the library’s materials. The natural solutions for each floor as well as the cooperation partners’ wishes were discussed together.
