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.
