Pyynikki Social and Health Centre’s glass facades, or the wells between the points, create slices of light and airy surfaces in the mass. Less wall-like, they provide maximum reflection and lightness to balance the copper.

Pyynikki Social and Health Centre provides many social and health care services under one roof. In addition to Tipotie Health Centre and a dental clinic, the building also houses mental health services, physiotherapy and occupational therapy services, social service centres for families with children of West and East Tampere, Pyynikki Maternity and Child Health clinic and a unit for children, young people and families.
