Located in Espoo next to the Iso Omena Shopping Center and Hotel Matts is the new Matinkylä’s leisure centre which has used Accoya wood extensively externally and internally.
The building was based on climate friendly solutions and designed by architect Lehto Peltonen Valkama.
The materials chosen needed to have long life spans, making Accoya the ideal choice. The building also has geothermal heating and 222 solar panels on the roof.
The plot of land reserved for the leisure centre is fairly small in comparison to the facilities desired but with ingenuity and multi-level design, a spacious entrance hall, café, fitness area and indoor swimming pool were included.
The sloping land was utilised and the height difference between the southern and northern ends of the plot is about 3 meters.
