About Teemu Pirinen
Teemu is in charge of the northern half of the Pirinen Salo office. Teemu lives in the small village Inarin Kirkonkylä some 300 kilometres north of the Arctic circle with his wife and three children. Living outside the architecture scene in a stress free and quiet environment helps him focus and create more freely drawing influences from a wide range of cultural influences.

About Pirinen & Salo:
Pirinen & Salo is a partnership of two architects – Teemu Pirinen and Lauri Salo. Teemu and Lauri established their office in Finland in 2018. The office is located in both Helsinki and Inari. Pirinen & Salo is active internationally, with current projects in Northern Europe and North America. Pirinen & Salo is a progressive and contemporary practice that focuses on architecture and design – from urban planning to buildings, interiors, objects, and products. Pirinen & Salo is actively involved throughout the whole design process, from the first sketch to on-site supervision. The practice works like a good tailor – Every client and every site have their own qualities and dreams. To fulfil these needs the designer must truly understand the being of both and deliver something more. Made to measure. Their work has been published widely in both professional and lifestyle media.
