Osake-Pankki’s Building

Turuntie 3

In 1912, the bank Turun Osake-Pankki built a business and office building at Turuntie 3. The building was designed by F. Thanden. The building reflects the simplification of Jugend style. In the 1910s, the suggestive and decorative feel that had characterised the style from the beginning, moved aside. In the Osake-Pankki building, subdued decorative motifs run in bands in the beams surrounding the windows and doors. The original appearance of the building has mostly been preserved. In the 1950s, the top floor was converted into apartments. Since then, the Osake-Pankki building has been returned to its original use as a building with street-level shops and offices.
