From the architect. The villa is located in narrow strip of woodland between open fields and a lake. The buildings are sited alog a pathway winding between birch trees. The path begins from the edge of the field and runs through the villa, by sauna, continuing to the lakeshore. The black oil finnish of the timber buildings continues the dark tone of the pine forest`s edge. The building opens towards the lake and is almost totally enclosed in the direction of the fields. The site has been left in its natural state.

The narrow interior space continues outwards and forms a part of the yard. The foliage of birch trees shades the interior from scorhcing sunlight in the summer. The heat-storing fireplace and wet areas are organised about the central masonary wall.
