The building process of the Finnish airline company Finnair’s new headquarters became a pleasant journey that landed in a LEED Gold certificate and accomplishing Class A requirements. Fagerhult provided efficient luminaires with light control that fulfilled the strict energy demands.
For Fagerhult it is important to be a responsive lighting partner that meets the needs of the project. The lighting chosen for this project was therefore tested in special model rooms and calculations were made before delivery, which arrived in good time to the builder.
Office to 1400 workers
Finnair’s office lies in the HOTT complex, House of Travel and Transportation. The total bulding area is 65 000 square meters and the airline company’s offices house 23 000 square meters of these. The headquarters’ interior, atmosphere and new lighting personifies Finnair’s fresh and light company brand. It is now an office space to 1400 workers.
With efficient lighting and smart building functions, such as ground heat and ventilation modified to each room, Finnair’s office fulfils the Class A requirements and has received a LEED Gold certificate. LEED is a tool used in green buildings which addresses the lifecycle of the entire building.
A green building needs efficient luminaires. The most striking luminaires in this project are the nine circles of Freedom that draws the viewer’s attention in the general areas. Freedom is a LED luminaire above the ordinary. It enables you to create dimensions and volume by drawing all kinds of lines of light – straight, circle or curved.
2700 downlights and comfortable work light
The crisp and fresh general light is provided by 2700 downlight Pleiad G2 with matt-brushed aluminium rings that are installed all around the office.
The workspaces are lit with 1250 pieces of grey suspended Closs Beta luminaires that produce a good work light level over the desks.
Both the Pleiad and the Closs luminaires were provided with light sources with extended lifetime.
These headquarters also embrace the functions that are part of a smart office of the future by using daylight control as well as presence detectors, all of which are controlled by DALI.
