The Building Heritage Centre Piiru and its surroundings are a good place to visit for everyone interested in old wooden houses and their renovation with traditional techniques and materials. Piiru is a permanent learning environment for sustainable and conservative renovation construction. As an old timber floater’s house, the renovated building has also played a part in the history of the City of Tampere’s timber rafting.
Piiru hosts today a wide range of events, lectures, and courses. Piiru has a permanent exhibition about its renovation. Visitors can discover the exhibition independently and scan the available QR-codes to have deeper understanding of Piiru´s renovation process in each room. There is a wide range of videos available on our YouTube channel to watch and see different phases and materials that were used during the renovation of the Timber Floater’s House.
