Duplio, Tuusula

“We had a few clear wishes for our future home: we wanted an efficient floor plan with no wasted squares, no unnecessary lobbies or halls. Our favourites were at least a steep double ridge roof, a white facade, wood effects, a black roof, and black window sills. Fresh, contemporary, and minimalist. We hoped for a south-west facing courtyard and a fair-sized terrace.”

– Blog Duplio

Lunawood Thermowood was selected for this three-generation semi-detached house due to its versatility. Lunawood Thermowood can be used both indoors and outdoors, creating a harmonious whole. Its most important features are durability and dimensional stability. In addition, Lunawood Thermowood is a silky soft and warm-toned interior material, which brings cosiness to the interior. In addition to a pleasant overall look, the heat treatment of the wood removes resin and harmful extractants such as formaldehyde. Thanks to this, Thermowood is a clean, safe, and hygienic material for indoor use, even for wood allergy sufferers. We believe that living in the middle of natural materials promotes people’s well-being and health.

The façade has Luna Panel System 20×142 profiles with a hidden nailing fastening and already the surface of the profiles was painted light brown at the factory. The stylish terrace is made of wide Luna Deck System Profix 3 40×185 mm terrace boards, which were already factory oiled. Installation was made with no visible screws, with hidden clips. The privacy of the outdoor pool is protected with the fence of black, brushed Luna Pro Coated UTV 20×142 and the pergola built with Luna Post 120×120 -posts and Luna SHP 42×68 -battens.

Lunawood Thermowood has been used indoors in effect walls, ceilings, and sauna rooms. The eye-catcher of the high foyer is the Luna Triple Shadow on the ceiling, which gives the impression of a battens, but is much easier and faster to install than individual bars. The effect wall of the bedroom and guest room is Jukola 3D 440-1 (plait). The sauna facilities have Luna Dual Shadow 26×142 as a wall panel and Luna SHP Sauna 26×92 as benches.

The house Duplio may be visited at the Tuusula Housing Fair (Finland, Helsinki-city district) in August 2020.
