Award-winning Leppävaara 2.0

We are proud to announce that our proposal “Taikavarpu” has won 3rd prize in the Leppävaara 2.0 open architectural competition.

Led by B&M Architects, the design team also included LOCI Landscape Architects, Peab, SATO, TA, Finnmap Infra (traffic design) and Sitowise (geo concultancy).

The competition task involved renewing the centre of Leppävaara as well as connecting the two currently distinct sides of the train line. “Taikavarpu” achieves this with a concept in which smooth connections and downtown functions are integrated into a clear and visually attractive entity.

We emphasized themes such as a lively and expressive environment, sustainable and flexible structure, and green and walkable urban areas. In the award-winning proposal, a technical-economic solution was presented which minimizes the climate load and preserves the city’s infrastructure to the greatest extent possible.

Salmisaaren ja Lapinlahden maankäytön Ideasuunnitelma 2020

Työssä esitetään visio Salmisaaren ja Lapinlahden sairaalan välisen alueen maankäytön kehittämiseksi. Länsiväylän uuden linjauksen ja katumaisten liikennejärjestelyiden avulla, tällä hetkellä liikenne- ja voimalaitos käytössä olevat alueet, muuttuvat toiminnallisesti monipuoliseksi ja kaupunkirakenteellisesti rikkaaksi osaksi Helsingin kantakaupunkia. Suunnittelualueena on Länsiväylän sillalta Porkkalankadulle jatkuva vyöhyke, joka pohjoisessa avautuu Seurasaarenselälle ja rajautuu koillisessa Lapinlahden sairaalan puistoalueeseen. Uuden kaupunkirakenteen avulla voidaan Hietaniemen hautausmaa ja Lapinlahden sairaala-alueet vapauttaa liikenteen haitoilta.

B&M 2023 +

B&M is developing and growing by joining AINS Group


For more than 30 years, we have designed and built better environments, trusting in the value of collaboration, traditions and development. We are now combining forces with acknowledged architectural studios AW2 Architects and Konkret, and joining the leading Finnish consulting group, AINS Group.


We joined AINS Group at the beginning of June. We will continue our ambitious architectural design and urban planning with our present staff under our own brand.

We will be working alongside two architectural studios, AW2 Architects and Konkret, whose architectural expertise and references perfectly complement ours. We share the same professional ambition and trust in the power of collaboration. The global challenges facing urban and building design in the future can only be answered through multidisciplinary collaboration.

Together, B&M, AW2 and Konkret will form AINS Group’s architectural design division. Our other new Group colleagues are project management and specialist design experts in the fields of construction management, structural engineering, renovation engineering, building engineering and civil engineering.

Together, we will be stronger and more agile in drawing on our traditions and diverse expertise, learning new and finding environmentally, socially and financially sustainable solutions for projects.


What will change in practice at B&M?

Our entire staff will continue in their current positions. Jussi Murole will continue as the director of the studio and a partner. J-P Lehtinen and Tuomas Seppänen will start as new partners.

Our architectural vision, innovation and ability to listen in diverse projects will continue as our most notable strengths.

The versatility and variety of B&M, AW2 and Konkret studios form a resource that we will make the most of. AW2 Architects is well-known as an architectural designer of hospitals, other health-care premises, and public facilities, while Konkret is particularly esteemed as an architectural designer for residential buildings and demanding renovation projects. Our multidisciplinary approach will improve our ability to serve our customers comprehensively.

As part of AINS Group, we are supported by strong technology and engineering expertise, adding our competence to develop solutions for any technical, ecological and financial questions in the projects.


What happens next?

We will begin to develop our collaboration with our new colleagues in AW2, Konkret and AINS Group.

For three decades, B&M has trusted in collaboration in the development of urban environments – and this will not change. Our projects and relationships with our customers and partners will continue unchanged. In the future too, we will remain open to all great collaboration.

Ratina shopping center received NCSC AWARDS 2023 
Tuomariston perustelut 
“Ratina elävöittää keskustaa. Ratinan arkkitehtuuri on mielenkiintoinen ja osittain haastavakin. Ratinan arkkitehtuurissa näkyy hienosti Tampereen historia ja kauppakeskus istuukin upeasti kaupungin keskustan miljööseen. Vuokralaisyhteistyöhön on panostettu ja mittaustulokset vuokralaistyytyväisyydestä ovat erinomaisella tasolla. Kauppakeskus panostaa alueen yhteisöllisyyden kehittämiseen ja on vahvasti sitoutunut myös tekoihin, sosiaalisen vastuun osalta ( maksuton  muskari viikoittain, seurakunnan perhekerhon tapaamispaikka, tunnin maksuton lapsiparkki) Elämyksellisyyttä lisää Euroopan suurin kattoterassi, saunoineen ja jacuzzeineen.”
