Finnish architecture firm Sigge Architects believe in designing sustainable buildings with real functionality. Since its establishment in 1956, the company has won numerous international awards including Best Building in the World for the Finnish Embassy in Berlin. From cities, government institutions and individual homes to private businesses, Sigge Architects have a host of clients. “Everything begins with functionality when we start to design a building,” says Pekka Mäki, CEO and partner at Sigge Architects. “We look at the local culture and surroundings, and try to incorporate these in our buildings.”
