FIOH also condensed its premises

We gave up our main building in Töölö, Helsinki, at Topeliuksenkatu 41 a A, and renovated our premises at Topeliuksenkatu 41 b to more efficiently make the use of space.

A fence was erected around the building, which featured entertaining, humourous illustrations, designed and painted by Multicoloured Dreams.
