Villa O

Villa, Inkoo 


Villa O is a summer house in the Inkoo archipelago, located at the edge of a small peninsula. The architecture of the villa combines elements from both the traditional Finnish villas as well as contemporary architecture. Villa O was constructed using wood and stone. The compact building comprises of a variety of spaces to inhabit throughout the day - and the year. Views towards the surrounding nature and the sea are framed through covered outdoor spaces. Peaking through the pines, the aspen facade of the villa has turned a beautiful silvery gray colour with age and weather exposure.
