“I started working as an architect with Arkkitehdit Davidsson & Tarkela last year. My current projects are in Helsinki: I am working as a project architect on the Skatta Hotel project, and as an architect in the Solwers Circular Economy Building Block project.

The office has a really interesting, wide-ranging portfolio of projects. Each project presents exciting challenges that require a high level of expertise and attention to detail. Our work community values collaborative teamwork, sustainability, and quality design and management. As part of the Solwers network, we also have a unique opportunity to draw upon the knowledge of the larger Solwers community. I would recommend both ADT and Solwers to my colleagues, I enjoy working here!”
