PEFC certified house
Maiha in Seinäjoki is Finland’s first PEFC certified timber block. It is a 5-storey solid wood multi-storey built by Lakea Oy in Seinajoki where the tree is spectacularly presented inside and outside. Maiha is built with Stora Enso’s CLT- space elemental solution and upholstered by Siparila’s TOPCOAT® exterior cladding. In Maiha the wood is visible in all parts of the building: outdoors, stairwells and apartments. The block of flats consists of space modules that are made of cross laminated timber (CLT) using space element engineering technology. Maiha’s exterior cladding is made with Siparila’s flame-retardant cladding. The color of the facade is inspired by the dark bark. The dark general appearance of the facades is dashed by the red details of the exterior cladding on the surfaces of the individual exterior spaces.
