Villa Musu is located on a beautiful lake shore lot with a pine tree forest surrounding the house. The design is shaped into a soft, organic plan that naturally flows into the landscape. The commission included a one family house with an entry porch, a Finnish sauna and an atelier. The indoor spaces as well as an outdoor terrace are covered by a bean shaped roof.

The house is completely wooden aside from concrete foundations. Load-bearing walls are constructed as timber frames, and the visible wooden roof structure was inspired by the veins of a tree leaf. Facades are made of black painted timber of different width and thickness. This way the villa blends in into the forest landscape.

Energy consumption of Villa Musu is reduced through extensive insulation in roof structure as well as the orientation of glazing. North and east elevations are massive walls, whereas south and west elevations bathe in natural light and benefit from natural passive heating with plenty of glazing. During warm summer months the overheating of rooms is prevented with projecting eaves.
