N10 is located in the Vallila district of Helsinki. 

Orion plc built the N10 building in Helsinki’s Vallila district in the 1930s and 40s. It was an Orion pharmaceutical production plant up to the 1960s and the company head office until the early 1980s. The building was still run by the Orion Group into the 2010s. Since then the building’s new owners started renting the former factory premises to cultural practitioners on a temporary basis.

The building filled up quickly, and in 2019 KAAPELI had the opportunity to purchase a building that fitted its profile and strategy and ensure that cultural activities could continue at N10. As part of the transaction, the building’s approximately 250 cultural and artistic tenants transferred to KAAPELI. 

Unlike in the Cable Factory and Suvilahti, N10 does not rent event spaces on a short-term basis.

KAAPELI will gradually renovate the property, listening to the needs of the tenants and respecting the industrial history of the building.
