Villa Lumi in Nummela, Finland by avanto architects

Thursday, November 16th, 2017

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.

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.
