Arktes Oy, Architectural Agency


Arktes Oy is an architectural agency established in 1983 in Oulu, Finland. The most important sites designed by the agency include recreation centers, aquaparks, swimming halls, hotels, spas, rehabilitation centers and fitness centers.

The designed sites are located in Finland and in several other European countries. Arktes Oy has been a pioneer in spa and swimming hall construction in Finland. Finland’s first subtropical aquapark, Oulun Eden, was ideated and started up by our agency. After this pilot project we have designed tens of tourist and recreation sites. Often the work has started with ideation of a project and continued to the design of the buildings themselves.

Many of our employees have been with us for over 20 years. During this time the diverse sites in different surroundings and cultures have given us experience and viewpoints as well as abundant professional skill in taking on new, challenging jobs.
