VILLA OSKAR, ROVANIEMI
Villa Oskar has been built in the middle of Lappish nature on the shore
haöghs of a lake in the wilderness. The plot of land has many buildings, which together form a connected courtyard. The main residential building consists of 2 parts; the main building, which purpose of use has been designed with a family’s parents in mind and the 2nd one is a guest house, which has been planned for a family’s growing children in mind and also for guests and a sauna. Between the buildings there is a roofed terrace. Approaching the house the closed courtyard partly hides the scenery, but the full glory of the surrounding nature is made clear once inside the tall entrance lobby, from which open views towards the lake are clear. There is also a sauna on the lake, which is heated by wood. The frame of the building is wood, outer surface are vertical wood boards and all the inner surfaces of the living quarters are white wooden panels.
Our office plans residential buildings from apartment buildings to summer cottages. In each case the starting point is always based on the needs of the client and the character of the location, in which case the buildings become characteristically appropriate for the location and architectonically original.
