Honorary Consulate of Finland in Cape Town

The climate in South Africa requires high performance of used materials. Actually, many architects in South Africa have told us that Lunawood Thermowood is the best wood product to withstand hot and changing weather conditions in South Africa.

This private house operates as home, but also as Honorary Consulate of Finland in Cape Town. The owner liked to have house with Nordic design: combination of concrete, glass and Nordic wood, Lunawood Thermowood. The soothing effect of Thermowood can be felt both indoors and outdoors. Luna Triple Shadow gives 3D-effect to the ceiling and it is much easier to install than separate battens.

Finnish sauna is place for relaxing and for new energy. The enjoyment is assured with resin free and durable Lunawood Thermowood.
