The Nokia House was the head office building of Nokia Corporation, located in Keilaniemi, Espoo. The two southernmost parts of the building were built in the early 1990s and the third, northernmost part was built in 2000. Around 5000 employees work in the premises.
In 2012, Nokia announced that it had sold its head office building to Finland-based Exilion for €170 million and was leasing it back on a long term basis. The building was later sold to Microsoft as part of the sale of the mobile phone business in 2014 and renamed to Microsoft Talo. Since the sale, Nokia’s headquarters are in Karaportti, Espoo, Finland.

The Finnish Parliament Annex (Finnish: Pikkuparlamentti) is a building in the centre of Helsinki, Finland. It houses offices for about one hundred members of the Parliament of Finland.
The building was built in 2004 and the design comes from the winning entry of a design competition held from 1998 to 2000. The building was designed by the architect Pekka Helin and his office Helin & Co.
As well as the offices, the building has a “Kansalaisinfo” information office open to the public. It also contains the EU secretariat of the Parliament, the office of the Parliamentary Ombudsman, and the offices of the Grand Committee and Foreign Affairs Committee of the Parliament.
