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 photographers to a brewery bar and from venues for gigs 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.

Short-term rental facilities managed by KAAPELI include the spectacular Kattilahalli and the courtyard area Energy field. Some of the tenants also rent event spaces on a short-term basis.

The steel and brick gasholders are landmarks of a bygone era in the city. The brick gasholder has been thoroughly repaired and the planning of the repair work for the steel gasholder has started. The restoration means the gasholders can be transformed into a cultural hub.
