"Poemstone" rises up out of the moss-covered cemetery. Jouni Tossavainen's poems of mourning run in silver lettering across the surface of the monolithic slab of verse. There are four poems, one on each side. One poem runs on from the next over the edge and mix with other, from one space to the next. When you walk around the stone, you can read the poem in different way. The carefully chosen natural stones, for the mother, the father and those to come, are located around the slab of verse.

We think that more important than flexibility for the creative collaboration is adaptability.
The ability to tell the same story even when the amount of pages in the book changes. With the knowledge collected having completed hundreds of small and large projects we can deduce that even though we are very proud of what we have accomplished the merit for our best work goes to our clients. They have shared our point of view that we only succeed because we share the same vision and dream. We design spaces, buildings and environments that are comfortable to live and work, pleasant to the eye and sustainable. We are creative design and architectural group, we want to create an inclusive world all around us - Piece by Piece.
