Finnish Parliament Annex
The Finnish Parliament Annex (Finnish: Pikkuparlamentti, Swedish: Lilla parlamentet "Little Parliament") 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 team.
As well as the offices, the building has a "Kansalaisinfo" information office open to the public, 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.
The name "Pikkuparlamentti" comes from a restaurant which originally stood at the same site.
