Pioneer of the hybrid construction
Kontio’s non-pressurized SmartLog ™ log has been used in the exterior cladding of log apartment buildings completed in the center of Pudasjärvi in 2021. Thanks to its structure, the unpressurized log enables very innovative solutions in architecture and building design.
Hirsihovi comprises two four-storey log apartment buildings right in the center of Pudasjärvi. The houses have a total of 53 apartments and an additional five commercial apartments at street level.
In the case of a log courtyard, hybrid construction means that the frame of the house is made of steel composite beams, concrete elements and hollow core slabs. Kontio’s SmartLog ™ log is made of materials from the building’s exterior cladding and part of the partitions. The construction model combines the best properties of materials and ecology.
