The old building Erottaja front was built in 1882 as a German school for girls (design by Frans Sjöström). In addition to the girls' school, the building housed the first coeducational school in Finland: Läroverket for gossar och flickor founded by Pastor Broberg in 1883. Rake's Corner is also connected to the early days of Finnish music education, as the Helsinki Music Institute, founded by the Helsinki Music Society in 1882, began operations in Hall Rake. Today, the Helsinki Music Institute is known as the Sibelius Academy. Rake Hall has witnessed performances by the most talented students of the music school. For example, Jean Sibelius took 6 practical examinations in this room. After the school was closed, a printing press took over in 1897, partly in the former school building and partly in a wooden building at the corner of Bulevardi. As operations expanded printing house, Lars Sonck architect was commissioned to design a new building, which was completed in the corner side Bulevardi Rake in 1912. Rake's story began in the corner in 1917, when the Central Printing Office sold the property to Helsingin Rakennusainekauppa Oy (Helsinki Building Materials Trading Company Ltd), which moved its headquarters to Erottaja in 1920. Restaurant business in the building began in 1913, when Mrs. Svea Tilgman opened a fancy restaurant called Gradin (her maiden name) in the new building of the Central Printing. Gradin was considered a family restaurant and it was advertised as a "women's own restaurant." In fact, will not be considered Gradin "sitting in a bar", although there was a bottle of wine on the table. After prohibitions and many changes in ownership, the hotel and restaurant as part of Rake ended Oy. In 1938, the Council decided to combine Rake restaurant facilities and boarding house, and called Klaus Kurki. The expanded hotel became a significant hosting business in Helsinki, with facilities including an elegant dining room and refurbished rooms. After renovation, the hotel includes 63 rooms, all equipped with a bath and most with a bathroom. In the 1970s, the hotel was a family business until it was sold to a chain at the end of the decade. Three decades later, in 2005, the same family, represented by Marc Mia and re-run the hotel.
