HOW TO FIND US and ACCESSIBILITY INFO:

Poimu is a little difficult to find, so please follow these instructions. There are two entrances through which you can access Poimu: KUORTANEENKATU 13 or KUMPULANTIE 1 (accessibility info below).

KUORTANEENKATU 13, HELSINKI:

We are at Kuortaneenkatu 13, Helsinki (opens Google Maps in a new window). You can find your way in by looking for a building that says “KIINNIKETALO” on the wall. Then find the back of the courtyard, a loading bay and a door next to it. You’re here!

Then make your way to the 5th floor via elevator or stairs, and press the doorbell that says “POIMU”.
