VERSTAS Architects Ltd is a Helsinki-based architecture practice founded in 2004 by four architects, Väinö Nikkilä, Jussi Palva, Riina Palva and Ilkka Salminen. Verstas offers high quality architectural design and operates on the whole scope of architect’s work, from urban design to the finest architectural detail. Verstas Architects is a member of the Association of Finnish Architects’ Offices (ATL).
VERSTAS aims to improve the built environment. We are commited to working in close collaboration with all parties involved in a project to achieve the best result.
“The name VERSTAS (Finnish for workshop) crystallizes the work practices essential to the office: close, discourse-rich group work generating a tailor-made, unique design result that best serves the customer, the environment and the purpose intended. Buildings are always an agglomeration of space, a weave of material and light. The underlying principle of VERSTAS Architects is to design places and spaces where people can be comfortable and thrive, and to ensure that the finished structure fits into the surrounding environment in a balanced and harmonious way.” (excerpt from www.finnisharchitecture.fi ‘Architect of the month’ profile October 2010)
