Puistokatu 4, located in the Kaivopuisto district in Helsinki, Finland, is an event space for people and a safe space for research, work and discourse on the current ecological crisis. Puistokatu 4 is a co-project of the Tiina and Antti Herlin Foundation and Maj and Tor Nessling Foundation.
Ground floor of the house, intended as an extended living-room for everyone in Helsinki, houses a library and Restaurant Elm.
Floor 2 houses the new offices of the Tiina and Antti Herlin Foundation, the Maj and Tor Nessling Foundation and the Forum for Environmental Information. The Puistokatu 4 team also works on this floor. In addition, a varying group of Puistokatu 4 members, called Agents, are based in the floor. Their work is linked to our mission in one way or another: building an ecologically sustainable future at the personal level, following the principles of a safer space and constructive discourse.
Floor 3 houses the Science Attic, a co-working space, base and meeting place for researchers of the ecological crisis from various fields of science.
The premises of Puistokatu 4 have been renovated to make them accessible for all visitors.
