The Pa-La type house is a small (floor area 97 m2) residential building suitable both to detached house living and as a holiday home. The building has plenty of roofed terrace as well as spacious and bright living quarters.


The Pa-La type house was originally planned for a housing association block. The façades of the eight Pa-La type houses located in the area tone with each other. Their colouring comes from the Tikkurila Arctic colour card. Each type house has a small private courtyard with apple trees and other plantations. Furthermore, communality is strengthened by a Pa-La block house planned in the centre of the area.
