A former separator factory becomes an open platform of creativity

Strategic consultancy Miltton is moving its headquarters in Helsinki from Kaisaniemi to Haapaniemenkatu 5 in Kallio. The new headquarters will be an open platform for creativity in a former separator factory and will begin operations during the summer of 2019. The venue, called Miltton House, will be a physical meeting place and an inspiration hub, as well as a workplace for Miltton’s talent and its stakeholders.

”The investment in Miltton House represents the next phase in Miltton’s growth story. The ways of working are under constant change and the best ideas happen when people connect in a meaningful way. Miltton House is a physical platform for encounters, conversation and creativity. In addition, it is a co-working space that produces new types of thinking by bringing together people from different silos of our society,” explains Mathias Järnström, Managing Director, Miltton Group.

Built in 1916, the 7350 m² building was originally designed as a separator factory. Now, it will be transformed into something very different when it brings Miltton’s personnel of nearly 400 people, clients and other stakeholders together into spacious and shared facilities. In addition to Helsinki, Miltton has offices in Brussels, Tallinn, Stockholm and Washington D.C.


“We want to ensure that the Nordics is the place to go for the world’s best creative thinking, communications and influencing. To achieve this, three things are needed: recognising the right talent, creating strong networks and working together in a creative environment. The co-working space we are creating on Haapaniemenkatu fulfils these criteria and will be used by us, as well as our new and old friends,” continues Järnström.

Designed by the architects Armas Lindgren and Bertel Liljequist, Miltton House is an architecturally valuable and protected building. It is the only preserved building from an old factory block, and its most notable quality is the grand gateway near Sörnäinen’s waterfront that enabled trams to stop inside the building. The property is owned by Mutual Pension Insurance Company Elo and the space is modified and designed to best fit for Miltton’s purposes by Futudesign.
