THE TRAVEL FILES: RESTAURANT STORY HELSINKI

story-helsinki-1

Recently openend restaurant Story is located in The Old Market Hall on Helsinki’s waterfront. The large space, which was once used for loading horse carriages, has been designed by interior architect Joanna Laajisto. Story’s interior gives homage to the original feel and history of the market hall, but placing it in a new time with a modern yet relaxed twist. The main challenge was to get the high-ceilinged hall to feel intimate. Story’s tables are designed and handmade by Helsinki’s own wood artisan Tebian. Many custom made solutions had to be found such as the lighting installation as the lamps were not allowed to be hung from the ten meter high ceiling.

  1. The restaurant and The Old Market Hall are really nice! I’ve been there so many times since I only live 0,5 km from there. Do not hesitate to drop by there when you are in Helsinki.

  2. I like your blog very much.
    But now, I’m sorry, this restaurant is like many others in many other towns. It’s clean, everthing should look stylisch, but – there’s a lack of intimacy, a lack of Individuality. It could be a modern diner in the states, it. could be a place in Berlin, it. could be a restaurant all over the world. Globalisation at it’s best. And therefore not a good example.

  3. This has an old fashioned feel to it. It’s both simple and functional. The booths look like an ideal place to hang out with a friend a enjoy a hot drink and good conversation.
