Pyynikin Trikoo, As Oy Tampereen Pyynikin Patruuna and Pyynikin Mestari

An old industrial property built at the beginning of the last century will be transformed into high-quality residential apartments. The first 70 apartments in Pyynikin Patruuna building will be completed during the year 2020, and 48 apartments in Pyynikin Mestari building during year 2021.

Both buildings belong to Pyynikki Trikoo’s oldest building stock. After the end of industrial operations in the 1980s and 1990s, buildings have been put to new use. Buildings are protected by city planning, which is why renovation and alteration work must take into account the preservation of the character of the buildings from the viewpoint of the city.

The exterior walls of the buildings 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. A few apartments in Pyynikin Mestari can be converted to atelier or working spaces. The building will also feature a sauna department and a gym for residents of both buildings. 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.
