Orderer: Private

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.

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.
