New life for public kitchen

Today the public kitchen (Kansankeittiö) commissioned by Walter Ahlström serves as a quality restaurant and as a venue for special occasions. Designed by Ivar and Valter Thome, the building is the oldest stone house of the ironworks milieu. The façade of the building is protected, as well as the colonnade and functionalist arch inside. The lush Waltteri park leads visitors to the idyllic restaurant, which has enough details for even a large group to admire.
