Sisco massive wood high-rises
A higher standard of living
The first Sisco modular wood apartment buildings will rise in 2017. They’re made entirely of wood – massive wood, to be exact. In fact, there’s a whole collection of them that comes in a range of shapes and colors.
The modular approach has really changed how we build – it’s faster, more flexible and delivers higher quality. But it’s changed more than just how we build, it’s also changed the entire design process. We’ve abandoned the idea of separate sub-projects in favor of a model where everyone involved in a project works together right from the start. This efficient way of working helps ensure successful projects that are completed on time. And the end result is a modern, comfortable place that people can call home.
Largest wood high-rise project in Europe, which advances Finnish wood construction internationally.
- ~250 apartments
- Approximate completion in 2018

It’s a totally new way of creating building facades. Every floor is rotated to create a dynamic and vibrant character. Pino high-rises are sure to be a landmark in their neighborhoods.
Simple solutions are always the best. Two structures are sandwiched together to create a 6-floor building made on a very human scale. Movable panels on the exterior can be used for added privacy or to adjust sunlight.
A classic and harmonic color scheme is always a great idea. Finnish heritage combined with modern technology creates a building that will stand out in any neighborhood.

Old idea, brand-new implementation
People have always lived in wood homes. Back in the day, traditional Nordic post-war houses were built very efficiently, based on a standardized concept and construction method. After that, things were pretty quiet for a while. Now, we’ve updated the production of large-scale wood houses with our new massive wood high-rises. And we created an entire collection of them while we were at it.
Our high-quality and cost-effective massive wood high-rises are made of sturdy and durable LVL modules, which means they breathe just like a wood house should. LVL massive wood modules are also great because they’re extremely adaptable. Each of the three models in the collection can be customized by adding balconies, terraces and overhangs to the facade. With Sisco multi-level apartment buildings, the sky really is the limit.
When you move into your new Sisco home, you won’t have to spend even one day living on a construction site. Here at Sisco, when a building is complete, that means yard is also cleaned up and ready to be enjoyed.
Our high-rises are modern and linear examples of Scandinavian architecture, and each one can have as many as six floors. The apartments are 26–70 m2 in size, ranging from studios to four-room homes. And of course they each have their own sauna. And these already ecological buildings get some of their energy from solar panels installed on the roof.
Ready in one go
It doesn’t take long to build our massive wood high-rises, thanks to our dependable process. Production of the solid wood modules and elements kicks off at our factory in Vantaa at the same time as the foundations are being excavated on site. The elements, which are made with industrial precision, are assembled at the construction site. After that, the roof goes on, the finishing touches are done and the yard is finished. When a Sisco massive wood high-rise is ready, it’s ready.
Get to know all of our Sisco homes. They’re designed with the greatest of care and smartly made from massive wood modules. That’s why they’re ecological and economical, but not expensive.
