Press release 5.10.2017 9:00 AM
The 2,500th Honka log home will soon be completed in Russia, providing a second home of 1,080 square metres for a family from St. Petersburg. Honkarakenne, currently preparing for its 60th anniversary, has been operating in the Russian market for more than 20 years, gaining a significant market position during that time.
The 2,500th Honka house currently under construction in the HonkaNova residential area is a home specifically customised to meet the customer’s needs. The house’s total area amounts to 1,080 m2 and comprises two floors. The one-floor wing contains a swimming pool with sauna facilities. The house was designed by architect Alexey Skoldinov, who is the man behind all architecture in the HonkaNova area.
HonkaNova is a modern residential area in the Solnechnoye village near St. Petersburg, some 300 metres from the Gulf of Finland. The area is designed to represent modern European architecture, and it has been awarded several prizes, such as the Best of Elite Class in St. Petersburg (Village of the Year 2017), the Best Housing Development of the Decade (ProEstate Awards 2016) and the Best Architectural Concept (2013). The constructor of the area is the company Rossa Rakenne, the exclusive distributor of Honka in Russia.
In 1995, Finland-based company Honkarakenne, founded in 1958, was the first western producer of log homes to launch operations in Russia. Russia remains the largest export market for Honkarakenne to this date, and its share of the company’s net revenue in 2016 was 28 per cent.
“Honkarakenne has been working to promote better housing for nearly sixty years. We want to prove that a high-quality log home constructed from Finnish wood with the use of modern technology is a great choice for many different purposes and environments. We are glad to have maintained a good, long-term partnership with Rossa Rakenne for already two decades,” says Maria Turenkova, Sales Director for Honkarakenne’s Russian operations.
Honkarakenne’s distributor Rossa Rakenne Spb. offers its customers a wide range of services from architectural design to interior design, construction and yard construction. The company specialises in large-scale projects such as the development of residential areas, restaurants and hotels.
“Our customers appreciate healthy and natural housing in a naturally beautiful environment. Our goal is to set the trend for high-quality, ecologically sustainable construction that takes natural values into account. In addition, we want to promote the sense of community in the areas by, for example, including playgrounds and sports facilities in the residential areas,” says Alexander Tsarev, Chairman of the Board of Rossa Rakenne.
