The new Kaivopiha offers city life at its best. We're making a better, nicer, and more sustainable downtown, one that will inspire new things and invite you to relax. Kaivopiha is every pedestrian's common back yard in the middle of the city.

We want to do things different from the rest: at Kaivopiha you’ll find the ambitious innovators, those who refuse to conform to the nonconformists of the retail sector, and the pioneers of making sustainable choices.
