Huttunen-Lipasti Architects has designed a house in the rocky island terrain of Naantali, Finland, for their friends. Completed in 2008, the Villa Mecklin consists of the house of 70m² (753ft²), and standing nearby sauna of 20m² (215ft²).
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.
