Metla House in Joensuu was completed in 2004. It is Finland's first large three-floor office building to be built from wood and to have a wooden frame. When Metla House was constracted, both new and traditional wood construction solutions were involved. Almost all of Finland's 24 native wood species were used in the structure and interior decoration of Metla House. Metla House has become an important national and international reference site for wood construction. It has also received several awards.
