Case Puustelli

Puustelli

Puustelli, a Finnish kitchen manufacturer that has dozens of stores in Finland, Sweden, Russia and Estonia, approached us with a startling question in 2013:”What does a kitchen manufacturer that focuses on online sales need physical stores for?” After studying the question in detail, we came to the conclusion that it would not be a good idea to have no physical stores. There are such potential and quality-related factors in the product range that are impossible to communicate to the customers without physical models. They just need to be presented in a new way.

Our solution for Puustelli was the development of a completely new showroom concept in which various events and available help as well as idea corners and thematic product displays along the customer path help customers find their dream kitchens and make them understand that the kitchen is truly the heart of the home.

The first renovated Puustelli stores opened in 2013, and the increase in their sales has been almost 35 percent. A premium quality environment helps customers opt for higher quality in their purchasing decisions.

Case AKTIA

AKTIA

Aktia Bank, which has 55 offices in Finland, wanted to update its image and distinguish itself from its competitors. The aim was to increase sales by e.g. improving the working practices and renovating the image of the offices.

We carried out the project in close cooperation with the client’s design department. In addition to a more family-oriented image, the aim of the interior design solutions was to support the customer’s feeling of the freedom of choice and the new role of the offices as places for different kinds of events, etc. We created a special “Aktia” furniture line which could be used for furnishing individual offices. In order to increase customer flows, a special focus was on the street visibility of the offices. As the project included solutions to improve working practices, we were also responsible for change management aiming at the engagement of the personnel in the new working practices.

In the past five years, we have carried out about twenty renovations in Aktia offices. The increase in sales has been 30 percent. We have also received positive feedback on the enhanced space utilisation and cost-efficient interior design solutions.

Sympathetic, cost-efficient solutions

FINNKINO

For the Finnkino cinema chain, we developed a theatre concept that offers new experiences to cinema goers. The first new concept theatre was opened in Kuopio in 2013. In 2015, new Finnkino cinema theatres were completed in the Plevna building in Tampere and in the Iso-Kiristiina shopping mall in Lappeenranta. Tennispalatsi, the largest Finnkino cinema centre in Finland, was opened after full renovation in autumn 2015.
