Honkasaari Villa

Principal design:
Heikki Lamusuo and Jaana Partanen
Pa-La team:

Partanen & Lamusuo Ltd has designed several recreational buildings and detached houses, in which connection with nature and organicity are an essential part of the basic idea and expression. Honkasaari Villa is a recreational building designed for private use, in which several small building units are set on the plot adapting to the form of the terrain.

The buildings blend into the forested terrain and are difficult to distinguish from the lake. Log walls have been treated dark with Tikkurila's Valtti Arctic pearly shine paint, and the terrace floor boarding is of Siberian larch. Several large windows delimit different views, letting you observe the changing natural scenery.

We think that adaptability is more important than flexibility when it comes to creative collaboration.
The ability to tell the same story, even if the amount of pages in the book would change. With the experience of hundreds of both small and large projects, we can deduce that even though we are very proud of what we have accomplished, the merit for our best work goes to our clients. They have shared our point of view, that we can succeed only because we share the same vision and dream. We design spaces, buildings and environments that are comfortable to live and work in, pleasant to the eye and sustainable. We are a creative design and architecture office, we want to create an inclusive world all around us - Piece by Piece.
