Modern Villa Snow White in Finland

In Finland,in  archipelago espoo there is this great villa designed by a Helsinky –based firm called Helin & Co Architects who have been shortlisted for the 2011 World Architectural Festival in the house category.This creation of theirs is situated in a residential establishment dating from the 1950s and it has a double function :as a home and as a showroom for the finnish company woonotes.

Like many residential  locations in Finland, this is situated deep into the forest, offering lush vegetation and a quiet environment and a magnificent view over the surrounding landscape.This household is composed of several stylish  living areas on separate levels and it is also functional, with comfortable bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen.

The interesting design s based on the man-nature communion. Thereby, numerous windows and glass walls extend the dimensions of the building  out in the surrounding nature, and bringing so, the outsinde in and make it part of the actual interior design.This is a modern construction in which modern building materials were used like glass, and steel but  traditional has not been forgotten.Wooden floors covers the entire house on every floor even outside on the tarrace.

This home is a modern one by definition.Glass walls, steel beams and poles sustainig  the stucture  are representative and definig for this type of building.Modern appliances and furniture are just a necessary addition to keep up with rest of the house.A perfect livable place , modern with an interesting finish touch I would describe it!{found on designboom}
