Humlegard House by Friman Laaksonen Architects

Humlegard House by Friman Laaksonen Architects


















The Humlegard House was designed by Helsinki-based architecture firm, Friman Laaksonen Architects. Their work has been published in professional journals and displayed at Finland Builds and private exhibitions at the Museum of Finnish Architecture. They have also taken part in group exhibitions in Finland and abroad. I like its typical Finnish design style whether in form, color or function, all combined with the use of traditional, natural materials.

This Humlegard House is located a few kilometers from the center of Fiskars, the Humlegard House is situated on a small, flat hill in a traditional way so that the north-south line runs diagonally through the building, making it an energy efficient and comfortable home while facing the extreme Finnish climate.

With primary considerations such as wind protection and maximum use of sunlight, this house architectural design gives the impression of a large, simple wooden structure, reinforced by a restrained, spruce-clad fa├žade in a beautiful gray color that matches the stark surroundings.

Determined by the requirements of the house interior spaces, large windows have been scattered freely across the tall, galvanized corrugated-steel clad facade facing the lake.
