House Y in Iisalmi, Finland by Arkkitehtitoimisto Teemu Pirinen

Friday, May 26th, 2017

Article source: Arkkitehtitoimisto Teemu Pirinen

Backstory

The client inherited an unattractive “McMansion” with poor spatial. The house was designed to meet the tastes of the former generation. The site also featured a large pompous garden with extensive manicured lawns. The house was too big and expensive to maintain. The client wanted to restore the plot to a natural pine forest, and built a small home that fully engages with the surrounding landscape. An added bonus to the restored pine forest is that the client doesn’t need to mow any lawns! The new house and garden have been designed to meet contemporary tastes. Hence, this project represents both a generational shift and a change in design ideology / ecology.
