The renovation of Mäntyniemi, the official residence of the President of the Republic of Finland, will begin in March 2024. During the renovation, the State Guest House in Munkkiniemi will serve as temporary premises. The renovation will be completed in spring 2026.

Mäntyniemi was inaugurated in November 1993, and its technical building systems have reached the end of their service life. The renovation will respect the original design of Mäntyniemi as much as possible. In addition to repairs to the technical building systems, the ventilation equipment in the main building will be replaced, furniture and lighting will be upgraded and lifts will be renewed. The energy efficiency of the buildings on the premises will be improved throughout.

ALA Arkkitehdit Oy was selected as the architectural designer for the project, Indepro Oy as the developer consultant, and Ramboll Finland Oy will carry out the electrical and HVAC design.

The current cost estimate for the refurbishment is approximately EUR 55 million, including the cost of the temporary premises. This estimate will be refined as the design and tendering process progresses.

The Mäntyniemi official residence was designed by architects Raili and Reima Pietilä. The buildings and surroundings of Mäntyniemi are protected by a town plan adopted in 2021.
