ALA Architects is a Helsinki-based architecture firm that seeks fresh angles, flowing forms and surprising solutions on all levels of architecture. Projects range from underground stations to housing areas, high-rise developments and cultural venues such as theater and concert hall Kilden in Kristiansand and the new Helsinki Central Library.
Kokoro & Moi is responsible for the identity, online concept and design for ALA Architects. The word ‘ala’ is used in Finnish for ‘under’. Therefore the bare black-and-white identity also features a striking ‘underworld’, a glance underneath the clean surface of the creative processes. The ALA Architects website features a comprehensive look at what's happening behind the scenes. Or, should we say, under the scenes.
