Janne Kantee, Architect SAFA, was born in Tampere, Finland in 1975. He graduated from Tampere University of Technology in 2008 and started working for Polar Life Haus the same year. Janne has designed numerous wooden buildings during his career, from public buildings to commercial premises, entire areas, and top-class residential buildings. The most visible of Janne’s projects is surely Sauna Restaurant Kuuma in the heart of Tampere, Finland.
Janne’s work carefully considers the customer’s wishes concerning living, the environment, and the plot’s opportunities. The characteristic design style is evident in the combination of large glass surfaces and wooden structures in such a way that natural light can be genuinely appreciated indoors. When seeing a modern log house or wooden house designed with piety, and which brings out the best sides of its location, you can also acknowledge: well, that’s obviously Kantee’s work!
Janne Kantee has designed several project building sites in particular. Find out more.
