Ettala Palomeras Architects is a Helsinki based architectural practice founded in 2007. We operate in all fields of architectural design, ranging from urban and infill design to detailed architectural design.

Listening to the client, understanding their needs, and acquiring a thorough understanding of the site are our key points of departure in each project. Our aim is to unite the needs and visions of the client into a aesthetically pleasing and functional entity. We believe functional flexibility and common sense go hand in hand with ecology and a building’s long life-span.

We often collaborate with other architectural practices and specialists of all design fields, and enjoy entering architectural competitions which we find provide the opportunity to investigate new design approaches and find creative solutions.

We use the latest digital design software, yet we never underestimate the power of paper, pencil and face to face conversation.
