ACCESS VIA 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 and press the doorbell that says “POIMU”. The front door is open daytime in weekdays but it’s a bit heavy and there is a threshold with no ramp. Entering through the front door, there is a small lift.
One can also enter through the loading area, where there is a large lift. There is a lift outside, leading onto the loading bay. The door of the loading lift is also heavy to open, but there is no threshold on the entrance. To enter Poimu from the stairwell there are two doors with thresholds, for which we have 1 movable ramp.
ACCESS VIA KUMPULANTIE 1:
The pick-up and drop-off area is located in the vicinity of the entrance, giving easy access to the pavement.
Outside the door there is sufficient room for moving e.g. with a wheelchair. The door opens automatically with a push button.
There is wheelchair access to the building through our neighbouring building at Kumpulantie 1 (opens Google Maps in a new window): enter from Kumpulantie 1 where the door has a ramp and it opens with a push button. Take the lift (size 155cm x 107cm) to the 8th floor. Go to your right. Before the corridor there is a 2cm threshold. Follow corridor until you see lifts on your left, take the loading lift down to 5th floor and find Poimu door bell.
