While Tampere undergoes a major development plan initiating large-scale construction in the city center, preservation and revitalization of the old railyard buildings have become a critical issue. The costly and challenging procedure of preserving the railyard buildings has made the plans for their future use even more critical. The study at hand aims to evaluate the potentials and examine the renovation of Tampere railyard wooden house for contemporary use. A thorough analysis has been done from the emergence of the railyard to the future development visions for the area. The restoration idea is then concluded for the railyard house to function as a traditional temporary housing with an active public core. A multiuse space opened in the heart of the building invites visitors of a wider range of demographics, interacts with the new use of the freight station building next door, and prompts the valuable participation of the creative citizens in the ongoing urbanization. Finally, the assessments and the technical issues for improving the building for the proposed use are reviewed and the design has been carried out accordingly.
