Kellohalli – Creative Culinary Centre in Helsinki

The history of Kellohalli project, developed in the framework of the World Design Capital Helsinki 2012 (WDC Helsinki 2012), dates back to 1930s when this red brick building was used as butchery - a facility serving rather primitive food procurement needs. Nowadays, however, hardly anyone would dare to say that we eat merely to satisfy our primitive physiological needs according to the well-known Maslow's hierarchy. Today gastronomy has evolved to become a part of one's lifestyle, identity and a medium to express one's creativity. We can even talk about gastronomy in terms of art and design.
Although some allusions to the historical purpose of these premises still exist, e.g., a railway line, enclosures for cattle, hangars, ventilation systems and freezers, the entire complex now serves as a laboratory of creative contemporary culinary.
Kellohalli concept is based on the collaboration with innovative chefs on Finnish and international culinary scene, conjuring up meals that fuse food, art and design. Food related events there will include special late night programs, á la carte adventures and fabulous weekend brunches. During warm season, a culinary bazaar will occupy a courtyard under apple trees, along with plant and seedling exchange site, etc.
Kellohalli was opened in September 2012, and its autumn culinary program is prepared by Finnish star chef Antto Melasniemi (restaurants - Kuurna, Lapin Kulta Solar Kitchen, Putte's Bar and Pizza), but in December he plans to share his trade secrets with restaurateur apprentices.
Kellohalli center is opened from Wednesday to Sunday, with private bookings available for other days.
