The rooftop of Stockmann department store in Helsinki centre had always been closed to the public but in May 2017 Stockmann Roof bar was opened. Located on the 8th and 9th floors of the department store, the rooftop terrace offers spectacular views over the heart of Helsinki. The rooftop bar is run by Restaurant Teatteri.
Stockmann Roof was designed by Pinto Design. The aim was to create a space that’s in line with the look of Restaurant Teatteri. The industrial details of the rooftop space were retained and the terrace was brightened up with streamlined furniture, lighting and plants. The white colour scheme was spiced up with turquoise as a reminder of Helsinki’s green roofs.

Hemingway’s is a bar and coffeehouse chain owned by Restel. The chain has 14 bars across Finland. Hemingway’s is named after the one and only Ernest Hemingway and the bars are designed to serve as cozy and inviting living rooms for the city’s residents and visitors.
The Hemingway’s concept was recently renewed by design agency Pinto Design and the first makeover was done in Hemingway’s Hietalahti, Helsinki. The space was divided into different areas where people can relax over coffee, enjoy some quality drinks or perhaps play a round of snooker.
Hemingway’s Hietalahti was filled with interesting and delightful details: the bar counter was covered with a vivid wood-panelling and the walls were spiced up with Ernest Hemingway quotes and pictures of local landscapes. As a result of the renovation, Hemingway’s Hietalahti is now a functional, unique and fresh meeting place suitable for many uses.
