Wilhelmiina Kosonen and I won the design competition for the concept and the spatial design of this hammam. Our inspiration derived from the stunning Eastern marble facades mixed with Nordic simplicity.


Startup Refugees Business Program is the most meaningful business program for dignity and impact. One of the most promising business teams Helsinki Hammam opened their doors first time ever at SLUSH Sauna Village.

Slush is known for it’s motto for dreams having no limits. Startup Refugees Business Program has helped 10 business teams with a dream to establish something unique in Finland during Fall 2017.
