Text description provided by the architects. House Vihavainen is situated on a exceptionally beautiful lake side plot in Punkaharju, Finland. The form and materials were inspired by the surronding nature with its rushes, stones and tall pine-trees. Large windows bring the nature inside to be a part of the everyday life. Weathered wood and low mass lifted from the ground gives the building humbleness and modesty in the beautiful Finnish landscape. Nature will take back it’s space in few years.
