Handpicked experiences in music, theatre and visual arts

Korjaamo Culture Factory is one of the largest independent arts centres in the Nordic countries. Korjaamo was founded in an old tram depot in Töölö in 2004, and now hosts three concert/theatre venues as well as six smaller creative spaces for meetings and seminars. The Vaunuhalli building is also home to Helsinki City Museum’s Tram Museum. You can also find two Escape Rooms at Korjaamo.

The latest renovation creating a large lounge and cafe area as well as the creative work spaces and a larger gallery space was completed in 2012. The project entitled Third Space, reflecting its role as a space between work and leisure, was designed by Berlin architect Florian Koehl and was part of the World Design Capital programme in Helsinki.
