VILLA HARTELA, LIETO, WOODEN HOUSING AREA
The Metsola villa area is a contemporary interpretation of traditional Finnish areas of wooden villas and mansion houses. The villas house four to five apartments, all with private gardens. The new area becomes a village-like milieu. We aimed to develop a modern vocabulary and new interpretations for nostalgic verandas, terraces and gardens. The area is a combination of private housing and dense communal housing.
The wooden villas open towards their own gardens. The narrow streets are bordered by garden fences, small scale storages and parking garages.
The apartments vary in size from 75 to 120 m² and their material palette consists of wood, steel and glass.
