the aalto house

This is such a cosy little house. I'm going to buy it. The 'Aalto House' was designed by architects Aino and Alvar Aalto and completed in 1936. Built among almost untouched surroundings at Riihitie in Helsinki's Munkkiniemi, the house was designed as both a family home and an office for the architects and is an intimate building for living and working using simple uncluttered materials.

Nice. Love Aalto- architecture and furniture light fittings, door handles- whatever. People often forget that there was a humanist side to modernism.
