The entire district of Kalasatama acts as the laboratory for new solutions piloted in Helsinki, and the Kalasatama Urban Lab space located in REDI shopping centre offers a place where developers can meet and events, meetings and networking can be organised
Kalasatama Urban Lab is:
A space for co-creation
Kalasatama Urban Lab is a cosy space where thoughts are free to roam and ideas can be crystallised. Visitors of the space are informed about smart everyday living services and the ongoing development in the Kalasatama area. The space can accommodate 15–30 for a workshop. The space is equipped with whiteboards you can draw on and movable tables and chairs, as well as a separate smaller workshop space with a rotatable touch screen. In the space, you are encouraged to solve climate challenges and utilise digital applications: you can examine and work on a 3D model of Kalasatama, for example.
An arena for climate-friendly and smart events
Kalasatama Urban Lab can be used to host public and private events. The space can accommodate up to 60 people, and it is equipped with a large screen, a presentation computer and a sound system. You can also use the large outdoor terrace.
Smart living showroom
You can see both agile pilots implemented in Kalasatama and the infrastructure supporting smart solutions as well as the new solutions built on top of it. You can experience the most recent climate-friendly and smart living innovations first hand at Kalasatama Urban Lab. The showroom is especially suited for visits by international groups.
The ‘super flexi-space’ for independent use
Smart Kalasatama interest groups may reserve the space for independent use through the Flextila service, and gain access using smart locks. The use of the space is also facilitated by further developing additional services and new solutions connected to independent use, allowing for monitoring of the space and utilisation of the data generated.
The space is open during events.
Please contact us if you are interested in organising events at Kalasatama Urban Lab promoting smart and climate-friendly living and urban development.
