About Agency

JKMM Architects offers comprehensive services in all fields and scales of architecture. JKMM has won 86 prizes in design competitions, including 40 first prizes, making it one of Finland’s most successful architectural offices.

JKMM’s philosophy is rooted in simplicity, craftsmanship and experimentation. They believe the best solutions are often disarmingly simple. Distinctive architecture is the result of the uncompromising pursuit of quality – as well as flexibility and improvisation. Quality is also about putting people first. JKMM sees architects as craftspeople: architectural beauty is the outcome of the exquisite treatment of materials.
