KOTI Helsinki / Sofiankatu 4 /15.8 - 17.9.2017
Be our guest at KOTI and escape the hectic pace of modern life. Savour the luxury of simplicity, the importance of home and the value of sharing unforgettable new experiences.
Sleep in your very own cottage and indulge yourself with tranquility and communal hospitality right in the heart of Helsinki.
Conceived and created by designer Linda Bergroth, KOTI (Finnish for "home") takes over the Tori Quarters to bring the magic of the cottage experience to Helsinki's historical centre.
Each evening, up to 12 guests can book from a selection of six spruce timber aitta. Each day, the installation is open for the public to visit.
KOTI is part of Mobile Home 2017 – a joint project of the Finnish cultural institutes of Paris, Benelux countries, Berlin and London. The project explores and interprets the different meanings of home in 2017 through architecture, art, science and society.
Mobile Home 2017 will culminate in a showcase of all five projects in Finland at the end of the summer, with KOTI taking over the Empire Premises of the Tori Quarters in Helsinki.
Mobile Home 2017 is part of the programme for the centenary of Finland’s independence in 2017, and it is supported by the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture and Arts Promotion Centre Finland.
