Allas Sea Pool, located a stones throw away from the Helsinki Market Square, proudly stands in one of the best locations in the city. This wooden sea pool boasts several saunas, swimming pools and a café. Allas Sea Pool also offers music, events, and wellness services including yoga, pilates, and water aerobics. It is a one-of-a-kind oasis in the middle of the city, the likes of which cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Allas Sea Pool awakens the soul of the spa culture of olden times when people would gather to discuss, to relax, and to live the good life by the water.
In addition to wellness, a cleaner future is one of Allas Sea Pools central themes. Beginning Spring of 2017, the sea spa will also feature the Baltic Sea Center, which will feature information about the protection of the Baltic Sea, sea routes, and Archipelago. Allas will also be opening a Cleantech Finland showroom, which will feature developing and progressive low-impact and energy-efficient technology solutions and services to reduce the burden on the environment.
The complete Allas Sea Pool is over 9,000 m² and the deck area 2,600 m². Allas Sea Pool is also a striking exhibit of wooden construction engineering. The main building, scheduled for completion in Spring 2017, will be made of Finnish spruce wood. The architecture for this structure was provided by the Huttunen-Lipasti-Pakkanen Company.
One of Allas Sea Pools funding methods was crowdfunding. In the fall of 2015, the investors far surpassed their fundraising goal of 500,000 euros amounting instead to over 814,000 euros. This group included over 407 investors.
The company behind Allas Sea Pool is Helsinki Allas Ltd. It is a sister company of Korjaamo Group Ltd, which manages Korjaamo Culture Factory in Töölö, Helsinki. The parent company is Töölö Urban.
