Raw concrete at Bunkkeri, Jätkäsaari

Bunkkeri, the concrete giant of Jätkäsaari, was built in 1972 for harbor storage purposes. It’s the size of a football field, a massive construction from the inside and outside. It was out-dated from the start and was never fully used in the following decades. Since the harbor functions moved to Vuosaari in 2008, Bunkkeri is now waiting for new life in the form of possibly a swimming hall, sports facilities and residential development.

In the basement of former toothpaste factory, current office building, there’s a secret room concealed with a bookcase. Behind the bookcase there’s a tiny room with mirrors on the ceiling. The room was a speakeasy at some point, possibly up until the early 2000’s. The factory was built in 1928.
