Oona Hynninen

Architect SAFA, Helsinki

I knew I wanted to be an architect already on the seventh grade. I got a glimpse of the diverse architectural field already in my first summer job, where I was involved in designing commercial buildings, learning environments and repair projects, for example.

I started at UKI Arkkitehdit initially as a part-time employee in spring 2021. I returned to the firm after taking my degree in architecture in 2022. I especially like the warm work community and comfortable premises at UKI Arkkitehdit.

I’ve mostly worked in hospital design at UKI Arkkitehdit. I’m particularly fascinated by user-oriented design in hospitals. Hospital environments are designed carefully with consideration to the needs of different interest groups.

I love to observe my environment both in Finland and on trips to abroad. To relax, I curl up in the corner of a sofa to knit or exercise in the form of badminton, for example.
