Villa Mecklin


Huttunen Lipasti Pakkanen Architects designed a residence nestled into the landscape of Naantali, Finland.

Here is the project description:

The Villa Mecklin is located in the Finnish archipelago. It sits in a small depressions in the rock, its sheltered terrace extending over the summit of the rock.

In connection with the shoreline sauna, there is also a stove-heated cabin for guests.

The building materials selected for Villa Mecklin are uncontrived, basic ones suited for the archipelago. All wood surfaces have been left untreated and will turn grey naturally.

The vila was built in 2008. The floor area of the villa is 70 square meter and the sauna is 20 square meter.

  1. Simple shape, stunning. The lines of the house take you straight into the spectacular focal point, the ocean. The interior is simple and sophisticated. The fireplace is tucked away nicely on the wall like a painting, attractive but unobtrusive. Have always loved the look of weather beaten gray wood, reminds me of the driftwood – very appropriate choice here.
