THE 12-STOREY RESIDENTIAL BUILDING EXUDES THE INDUSTRIAL HISTORY OF THE CITY.
The PMK-Torni building that is rising next to the PMK-talo, which used to be a central warehouse and sales office for cotton factories in Tammela, Tampere, fits well in the industrial landscape where red brick is the dominant material. The punch cards used for weaving cotton have acted as a source of inspiration for the façade architecture of the building. There is an interesting contrast between the verticality of the PMK-Torni and the horizontality of the neighboring PMK-talo. This landmark, with its curved walls, will be completed by the high-rise sculptural element, which will complement not only the building complex but also the entire area of Tammela. The amenities of the new building will be combined with the roughness of industrial architecture, a great location, and splendid views. The compact tower building has been fitted with a maximal number of windows, enabling views in several directions.
In the project, Petri Tavilampi acted as the main designer and Merja Kiviranta as the project architect.
