a winter home in finland


This winter home in Virrat, Finland, is designed by Helsinki studio Avanto Architects. The house with four wings called Four Cornered Villa has beautiful views over the surrounding landscape.


The house is stained black on the outside which contrasts beautifully with the very light interior. The building is insulated well and heated by wood only resulting in a carbon neutral building. There is no running water and the electricity is provided by the sun. Vegetables and herbs are cultivated on site.
