Suomi/Koivisto is an architectural duo working in the field of environmental architecture. We are based in Helsinki, Finland.

We wish to create enjoyable living environments for both humans and non human beings. For us architecture is a force of change towards more sustainable living.

We make spaces, we research, teach, discuss and write. We believe in multidisciplinary co-operation. We search for new ways of studying societal questions through multisensory spatial experiences.  

We explore and strech the boundaries of architecture. We are interested in values guiding architectural decisions. The climate emergency and loss of biodiversity demand us to re-evaluate our place as part of the ecosystem. We want to build possible futures from the basis of the entanglement of human culture and nature.
