THE NATIONAL MINT OF FINLAND

Helsinki

August Boman, 1864
Façade alteration by Florentin Granholm, 1872

The National Mint of Finland (finished 1864) in Helsinki South Harbour was designed in the intendant office by August Boman (facade alteration in 1872 by Florentin Granholm). Since 1988 the building had been used by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland. 

Mustonen Architects Ltd was responsible for designing and participated in overseeing the former mint building’s roof and facade renovation in 2012–2013. In the renovation, the color scheme of the facade as well as the shape of the plaster and gypsum ornaments were restored closer to the original.

Mustonen Architects Ltd. has also conducted a building historical survey of the mint building in 2017.
