HIMLA is a composition of three experienced founder architects and their offices.
In October 2015, three architects, Jari Mäkimartti, Jussi Hietalahti and Topi Laaksonen started HIMLA architects in Tampere, Finland.
The three had gotten to know each other already as students in the beginning of the 1990’s. After for more than a decade of practicing their professions separately, their paths crossed again.
HIMLA now gathers the skills of the three founders and their offices. Since the beginning, the goal has been to achieve versatile and challenging project development and to specialise in designing health, safety and education.
HIMLA architects is a member of The Association of Finnish Architects’ Offices (ATL).
The HIMLA crew is our most valuable resource. Our office now consists of 18 skilled individuals who work with enthusiasm and form the foundation of our value architecture.
