Rautatieläisten talo

Hämeenkatu 2

Bruno Granholm 1896

The building in the corner of Hämeenkatu and Rautatienkatu was built for the people working for the state railways. It was originally built as a two floor house, but a third floor was built later. When the tunnel under the railway (Rautatietunneli) was built in 1936, the ground level was lowered so much that the basement of the building became the first floor. This is the only building I know that has been extended both upwards and downwards!

Rautatieläisten talo represents the neoreneissance (uusrenessanssi) style typical of late 19th century houses in Tampere.
