We’ve done many restaurant projects together with Jaana Ekman over the years. It is not just about her skillful design work, but also her ability to manage the overall project management. Jaana has an exceptional ability to create beautiful and sensual spaces. Every decorative detail has been carefully thought out. The project was completed with great sense of style, efficiency and attention to detail, I would highly recommend Jaana & VDPHelsinki for any project.

What people say?

Amarillo has a long and productive history. It was wonderful to start Amarillo’s new era here in Kuopio, were the second oldest Amarillo resides. It was great to witness the intensity of a professional design company and their important role in the whole project. In collaboration with SOK, Visionary Design Partners Helsinki Oy and Osuuskauppa PeeÄssä, we were able to create a successful update and with this update, we are able to bring new experiences to our customers in Kuopio. Dishes that encourage social dining, fresh mexican food, compelling milieu and service that is memorable are in the leading role. At the same time, the whole chain is stepping in to a new era, when all Amarillo’s are undergoing an extensive renewal.

What people say?

Tikkari-Talo in Vaasanpuistikko has had many different functions including various different restaurant concepts. Now the new era reinvented Amarillo and the completely new concept “Butcher & Banker” have brought Tikkari-talo to life like never before. The joint project of KPO, VPDHelsinki and SOK cooperative was truly intriguing one and the common intent and determination led to an amazing end result. It was truly a real pleasure to work with VPDHelsinki on a project, where a unique vision was actually realized.

We wanted to respect the hundred year history of the building; the interior must be respectful of the traditions, but trendy at the same time. Jaana has managed to combine both in brilliant way.

What people say?

Thanks to expansion the Mylly shopping center is now in a completely new development cycle stage. In the development of operations our main goal is to improve the level of customer experience from good to the most desired in various sectors as products provided, services and service methods as for interior design solutions and the ambience. My goal was to raise the visual customer experience to a new level. Since becoming familiar with the work quality of VDP Helsinki and Jaana Ekman I was convinced that with them we can get into new implementations and moods beyond ordinary solutions already seen elsewhere. I am very happy with her unique implementations, atmospheric, but very practical space and decoration solutions. Cooperation with VDP Helsinki and Jaana Ekman has been uncomplicated and their enthusiasm and commitment to the project has pleased me in particular. I hope that we can work together with VDP Helsinki and Jaana Ekman in the future within several more restaurants projects providing interesting restaurants for our clients.

What People Say?

“The goal was to honor the architecture of the building, and get a slightly revamped look to existing premises of the Best Western Hotel Rantapuisto in Helsinki. Visionary Design Partners Helsinki Inc. was a great success in this task. The lobby and reception got a great new look that fits well with the rest of the building’s interior. Also, other small decoration and design arrangements and solutions were executed to the corridors, as well as a new look for the hotel restaurant and the the 2nd. floor conference facilities.”

MR. TIMO VEPSÄLÄINEN, CEO PRIME HOTELS INC.

She implemented independently within the given framework a restaurant interior design that supports the restaurant business idea completely and also an decor that is able to produce pleasant experiences to our customers. Her contribution and full devotion to the project allowed me to focus at the same time on other tasks in peace, to refine other key areas in our concept to improve our succesfull restaurant.”

Mr. Tasse Laukkarinen, Chairman of the Board, Isä Camillo restaurant

What People Say?

”MASU Asian Bistro, a restaurant that Jaana Ekman designed for me and Gastromax Inc. succeeded beyond our expectations. A matching interior, budget and schedule worked as planned, and the result was strikingly handsome. I can honestly say that I am more than proud and happy that for once, the designer was able to get the job done. We got to experience this first weekend of practice, since only two days after the opening of MASU Asian Bistro, restaurant was really crowded and everything seemed to be working. At the same time, we noticed the most important, which is that our customers really enjoyed the restaurant very well. Therefore, I would highly recommend Visionary Design Partners Helsinki Inc. services of all of you who are currently planning to reform the existing premises of your business or perhaps starting a completely new business. You will not be disappointed!”
