Avarrus Architects is a Helsinki-based architecture and design office founded in 2008.
From the initial task to the finalized product, we strive to design sustainable and functional architecture. For us, sustainability consists of ecological, aesthetic and social values.
In the summer of 2022 Avarrus Architects builds a wooden pavilion together with UPM and Ollikaisen hirsirakenne at Fredantori, Punavuori to liven up the city space. The translucent roof structure lets light through leaving the overall look airy while providing cover and pleasant spaces to relax and enjoy the surroundings for passers-by. The pavilion was inherently designed to be disassembled and reusable after the summer due to its temporary nature. The design for the Pavilion by Avarrus showcases the use of ecological wood and recycled materials of UPM.
