Villa Muurame In Finland by Casagrande Laboratory

Marco Casagrande of Casagrande Laboratory designed Villa Muurame, a contemporary residence located in Jyväskylä, Finland and completed in 2014.

“Villa Muurame is a wooden 3-story single-family home by Lake Jyväsjärvi in Jyväskylä, Finland.  The spatial elements of the house (approx. 3m wide, 7.8 longa and 3.1 high) were pre-fabricated during the winter in the Muurametalot housing factory in Karunki, Finnish Lapland and the elements were erected in Jyväskylä after the snow had melted. The timber used is extremely slow grown and high quality Lappish spruce and pine.” – Casagrande Laboratory

“The house is getting more private as one moves up the floors. The ground floor is an open space with collective functions, the bedrooms are on the second floor and on the third floor you get naked. Each floor has their own terrace or balcony and the second floor opens to an extensive roof garden.
The house is warmed up during the harsh Finnish winters with geothermal heating, which also cools down the house during summers.” – Casagrande Laboratory
