Villa Lumi in Nummela, Finland by avanto architects

 
November 16th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: avanto architects

Villa Lumi (lumi = snow) is bordered from three sides by streets. The incoherent suburban environment doesn’t provide any interesting views or starting points for the architecture. This is why the building turns around a courtyard. The noise of traffic is blocked with a glazed pool wing. Terrace courtyard, opening towards the evening sun from the west, is a place of several activities for the family living in the villa.
