Suvilahti cultural centre is a unique historic environment right next to the growing Kalasatama district.

For a century the former power plant produced gas and electricity for the city’s residents. Since the start of 2008, Suvilahti is administered by Kaapeli and the energy is transformed to culture.

Suvilahti cultural centre comprises nine buildings, with tenants ranging from authors to a brewery bar and from a graffiti gallery to circus schools as well as 2.5 hectares of open-air yard space, where there are large public events and urban culture and music festivals, especially in summer.

The spectacular Kattilahalli and the yard area Energiakenttä are available for short-term rent.

Renovation work is in progress in the gasometers, which have become a city landmark. This will allow them to be used for cultural purposes later.
