Consulate General of Finland in New York moved to new premises on Monday, July 9th 2018. The interior decoration is full of beautiful Finnish design, with stunning views over Manhattan.
This week we moved to our new office premises at 605 Third Avenue in Manhattan's Midtown with Finland's Permanent Mission to UN and Business Finland!
Our interior decoration is full of beautiful Finnish design and the views are absolutely gorgeous. We're pretty convinced that it's the coolest office in NYC!
The office was designed by Sami Kytökorpi from Tähti-Set Oy, with the interior decoration designed by Marko Nenonen from Protest Design. Nenonen says the interior was inspired by Finnish culture, technology and skills, nature with its seasons together with Finnis values, such as genuineness, equality and honesty.
The office space was divided into three visual spheres: first one representing the Finnish winters' rugged beauty, second our thousands of lakes and the world's cleanest drinking water, and third depicting a summery forest vista.
These themes "became alive" in the choice of color and material, and in spacial design such as the lobby and common room's roof and light installations of ice and forest views.
The final result is eye-catching. All the visitors will feel like they are actually in Finland when visiting these premises!
The Consulate is now located at:
605 Third Avenue, 35th floor, New York, NY 10158.
The telephone numbers and email addresses of the Consulate General staff will remain unchanged.
