Pyynikinlinna, Tampere

Pyynikinlinna is a museum building completed in 1924. Designed by architect Jarl Eklund, the building represents Nordic classicism of the 1920s. The building was commissioned by pharmacist Uno Hagberg. Nowadays, it houses the Emil Aaltonen Museum. Pyynikinlinna is protected with the sr-8 code in the local detailed plan and it is part of a cultural environment of national importance (Built cultural environment inventory 2009).

We carried out project planning for the project and structural engineering for the renovation of the façade, roof, terraces and balcony structures and the floor and foundation walls.

The façade, terraces and roof were renovated in keeping with their original style. The plastering of the façade was replaced with lime mortar and chalk paint using traditional methods. Gypsum and plaster decorations were also restored to their former glory. The roof was not replaced in its entirety; instead usable tiles were cleaned cautiously without damaging their surface and reused.
