Niko Okkonen

Architect, Oulu

UKI Arkkitehdit is a stable and dependable firm that has been in the business for a long time. I feel humble pride to be part of this firm and wonderful work community, which has already given me so much. I’ve had the opportunity to work as an architect in many different projects of varying sizes: from high-rises to schools and hospitals. I think the most important things in my work are the variety and wide scope of tasks, which make work interesting and challenging. Ecology and sustainable development are modern challenges to architecture. They are processes that happen slowly and cease to make progress without sufficient attention already in the design phase. 

I dream about building a workshop for myself some day for tinkering with my own small projects. Until then, I spend my time hiking in nature, meeting friends and culturing myself.
