Microsoft Talo (formerly named Nokia House) is the head office building of Microsoft Mobile, located in Keilaniemi, Espoo, just outside Helsinki, the capital of Finland.

History[edit]

The building was designed by architect Pekka Helin.[1] It has three parts: The two most southern parts of the building were built in the early 1990s and the third, most northern part was built in 2000.

Nokia operated in the building since 1997.[1] They owned the building up until December 2012, when it was announced that it had been sold to Finland-based Exilion for €170 million. Nokia continued using the building as its head office building, leasing it on a long term basis.[1]

The building was transferred to Microsoft as part of the sale of Nokia's mobile phone business in April 2014. The building was renamed Microsoft Talo.
