Workers’ college in Kallio

The main building of the Helsinki Workers’ College is located at Helsinginkatu 26 in Kallio.
The original building facing the street dates from 1926 and the extension was completed in 1959.
The adaptation of the premises to meet today’s needs has been done with respect and seeking inspiration from both buildings. The classic old part and the modern add-on are very unique in their architecture and together they form a versatile whole. Different styles are also reflected in the furniture, their colors and materials. The works selected from the collections of the Helsinki Art Museum are strongly present in the lobbies and corridors of the college.
