Hannunkari & Mäkipaja Architects

About Agency

Specializing in housing, Hannunkari & Mäkipaja design everyday architecture ranging in scale from individual homes to urban neighbourhoods. They integrate their architecture with its setting by combining carefully orchestrated forms, materials and details with an efficient, polished plan, their aim being to create high-quality environments through clarity of design.

The architects employ an empathic approach to designing the best possible home for every resident, regardless of whether it is rental or owner-occupied. Embracing a belief that everyone’s home should be a peaceful retreat from the hectic pace of urban life, Kristiina Hannunkari and Veikko Mäkipaja co-design the initial concept, which is then finalized by their design team.
