Emma Johansson

Emma Johansson cofounded Studio Puisto together with four other young architects; Heikki Riitahuhta, Willem van Bolderen, Mikko Jakonen and Sampsa Palva in 2014. Studio Puisto has been awarded several prizes and honorable mentions both in Finland and abroad. Studio Puisto believes that constructing in a sustainable manner pays off without compromising on a beautiful and functional end result. “Ecological, economical, and social ambitions come together in our projects.” Special expertise includes use of wood and other natural and sustainable materials and low and zero-energy design principles. In Emma Johansson own words “For me, the most important part of working as an architect is working together with the client to find the best possible solutions for each project in hand. I am at my strongest in projects that require a certain sensibility, a strong vision and balancing between different ambitions”. In Rovaniemi “Arctic TreeHouse Hotel” including about 30 individual shingled “treehouses” placed on pillars in the woods were completed in autumn 2016. NKS speakers will be accommodated in these.
