Pyynikin Trikoo, As Oy Tampereen Pyynikin Patruuna

An old industrial property built at the beginning of the last century will be transformed into high-quality residential apartments. There will be 70 apartments in the building.

Asunto Oy Tampere Pyynikin Patruuna belongs to Pyynikki Trikoo’s oldest building stock. After the end of industrial operations in the 1980s and 1990s, the building has been put to new use. The building is protected by city planning, which is why renovation and alteration work must take into account the preservation of the character of the building from the viewpoint of the city.

The exterior walls of the building are massive brick walls and columns, intermediate floor slabs and joists are made of concrete. Of the interior structure, only the supporting frame will be left. The apartments will be connected by a central corridor and all of them will have either a French balcony, a small balcony or a roof terrace. The stairwell in the north wing will also be converted into apartments. The brick-walled parts of the facade will be renovated and the plaster will be renewed throughout. The roof will be rebuilt with roof terraces, including storage, and a new machine room.  The ground floor slab and roof will be completely rebuilt. The courtyards will be renewed to fit with the landscape plan.

Pyynikin Patruuna will be completed in 2020. Commercial activities are also planned for the area.
