In Flexi Spaces project (“Joustotilat” in Finnish), a new way of making flexible and transparent usage of spaces is being developed and trialled in Smart Kalasatama. More efficient and flexible use of spaces offers possibilities for many different user groups from start-ups, entrepreneurs and remote workers to groups of active citizens, and temporary pop-up activities. In Kalasatama Flexi Spaces are available for meetings, hobbies as well as short time working through Flextila-service (www.flextila.com).
Better utilisation of empty and underused spaces, as well as opening them up to residents, is one of the objectives in the new strategy of the city. The Flexi Spaces project has already seen success in opening up a range of spaces with the help of digital solutions, such as smart locks.
