Pikkuparlamentti.jpg

Pikkuparlamentti ("The little Parliament", Swedish: Lilla parlamentet), originally named Eduskunnan lisärakennus ("Additional Parliament House", Swedish: Riksdagens tillbyggnad), is a building in the centre of Helsinki, Finland. It houses offices for about one hundred members of the Parliament of Finland. The building was built in 2004 and the design comes from the winning entry of a design competition held from 1998 to 2000. The building was designed by the architect Pekka Helin and his team.

As well as the offices, the building has a "Kansalaisinfo" information office open to the public, the EU secretariat of the Parliament, the office of the justice official of the Parliament, and the offices of the great council and foreign affairs council.

Materials used to build the Pikkuparlamentti building include many different kinds of wood and stone, for example birch, maple and pine, and granite gathered from various places in Finland.

The name "Pikkuparlamentti" comes from a restaurant which originally stood at the same site.
