Extract from the Finnish Architecture 2010-2011 jury report by Carl-Viggo Hølmebakk:

“With its monotonous main facade, sober proportioning and sophisticated detailing, this edifice manifests itself with convincing force. A fairly pragmatic programme stands as a wonderfully precise architectural statement ­– for the benefit of both the users and the entire neighbourhood.”
