Tampere’s largest and most versatile centre for retail and entertainment is being built in the lakeside Ratina district in the city centre. Ratina.
Ratina will be the largest centre for retail and entertainment in terms of the type of businesses and selections. Ratina consists of three buildings of significant architectural value. Together they tell an interesting story of the development of the urban culture in Tampere. Two of the buildings, representing 1930s functionalism at its finest, will be renovated and modernised while respecting their heritage. The third building will be a magnificently spacious new building with a lot of light that represents high-quality contemporary design and construction.
