Two of Finland’s leading architecture firms, SARC and SIGGE, join forces

SARC Architects, founded in 1965 in Helsinki, and SIGGE Architects, founded in 1956 in Turku, are merging. The merger is motivated by a desire to provide customers even better service than before, thanks to diverse expertise, an extensive project portfolio and geographical coverage. The works of Sarc + Sigge have received several architecture awards, both Finnish and international. The company employs 140 architecture professionals. Its offices are located in Helsinki and Turku.

“In the future, architecture must be able to respond to ever more complex challenges, taking urbanisation, climate change and buildings’ lifecycle questions into account. By joining forces, we will be able to manage demanding projects in a very solution-oriented way, and enable aesthetically and ecologically sustainable design for both customers and society,” says Sarc + Sigge’s Managing Director Sarlotta Narjus.

“I am very glad that we were able to easily find common ground with SARC. We share similar values, corporate culture and level of architectonic ambition. Together, we want to be Finland’s most valued architecture firm and the best home for talented and ambitious architects,” says Sarc + Sigge’s Deputy Managing Director and leader of the Turku unit, Pekka Mäki.
