Bcklight works for both public sector as well as private companies.
In the second half of 2016, Bcklight implemented four area and space design projects near the Arctic Circle as well as in Tampere, where the company is registered: Starting in August, the content-oriented space design project for the Lapland University Consortium Library prepared the merger of two university libraries. The space ideation project for University of Lapland’s teacher training school laid the foundation for expanding the school’s teaching activities to grades 7–9.
In Tampere, the company drove digitalisation through the Tesoma district portal and planned the future of the Amuri district in a city block workshop organised together with the City of Tampere and Harris-Kjisik Architects. A summary of the results of our latest work is available in Finnish on the City of Tampere’s website:
“The goals of the space design project for the Lapland University Consortium Library were set sufficiently high and the design process was completed thoroughly, effectively and smoothly.”
Jukka Mäkelä. Vice-Rector, University of Lapland
“The space project for the University of Lapland’s teacher training school implemented user interaction in an engaging, functional and clear way at workshops where the participants could influence their future workspaces by presenting ideas and models about the activities and facilities.”
Heikki Ervast. Principal, Teacher Training School of the University of Lapland
“Bcklight created a shared digital living room for the Hervanta district in Tampere. It enables examining the district’s history through stories, photographs and videos. The work was excellent and considered the various groups of residents throughout the project.”
Petri Pekkola. Chair, Hervannan Tiedotusyhdistys association
“Juha designed the facilities for our offices in Helsinki, Shanghai and Tokyo commendably. The implementation supports the company’s business and facilitates communication between the offices. The excellent end result enables the locations to work together on highly demanding projects, such as transmitting a real-time video feed on the test use of a product across continents while discussing the session with the customer through an interpreter.”
