The Karisto Service Centre, designed by Tilatakomo architects’ office, is a masterpiece in wooden architecture. Natural colours and the use of varied panel widths contribute to its elegance.
The façade was clad in straight-edged UTS panels with a thickness of 28 mm and a width of 108 mm. The chosen colours were Tikkurila 345D (brown), 3140 (grey) and 5059 (red). The siding product was ready-made Topcoat panelling.
Topcoat siding has a concealed mounting system, which improves the weather-proofing of the façade. There are no visible nailheads, which means that water and impurities cannot get into and damage the wood. Topcoat siding is ready painted which make it also carefree siding.
