The Tulli area, located in the city centre of Tampere, is literally colored by its industrial heritage which also is a prominent quality in the center of Tampere. The red brick is significant for the area and also a robust parameter to build on, emphasizing heritage and at the same time creating generous conditions for long usage and durability.
The tower is a beacon and focal point for Tampere’s-, and the area of Tulli’s future and will guide guests from the travel center and other parts of Tampere to this cultural arena of both in- and outdoor spaces. Both the skyline and the experience in eyelevel will have a grounding in Tampere’s proud heritage as well as aspiring future.
The Tulli Halls project will provide Tampere with an environment for future growth based on the city’s heritage. It enables attractive living conditions for a broad target group as well as a public environment where the citizens can meet and share knowledge, experiences and create new stories together in the very center of Tampere.
