The Story of Amerikka
Developing an attractive concept requires experience, research, and creative insight – whether it’s the world’s best wine bar or a shopping mall with many different industries and functions. Successful projects with properties, commercial operators and cities have given us a broad vision for building attractive concepts, regardless of scale. We want to understand our operating environment extensively and use our vision to the best of our customers.
AMERIKKA was founded in 2004. The original idea of Amerikka arose from combining the expertise of project architect Sami Maukonen and of Teemu Nojonen from an advertising agency background. The idea was to create “branded, commercial interiors.” Spatial plans for well-known brands like Pfizer and Sampo Bank kept the team busy. The first shopping center complex we designed was opened in Ruka, Finland in 2005.
Collaboration with both tenants and properties has also brought a customer-oriented perspective to urban development projects. Amerikka designs premises and properties and acts as a consultant on regional development projects. Amerikka develops thriving urban environments in every area.
Why the name Amerikka?
We want to shake up the accepted practices in architecture and be a pioneer in our field. Amerikka is an agency where you can build dreams. And those are the dreams we make come true – both for us and our customers!
