This fabulous house was designed by the architectural studio VOID Architecture, founded by architect Paolo Caravello. It sits on the shore of Lake Päijänne, in the Municipality of Sysmä, in Finland.

Exterior walls covered with wood

Its construction began in the spring of 2015 and ended in 2017. Its interior has glass walls, as well as a pyramidal roof with glass finishing, which allows direct light to enter the whole area. Its walls, covered entirely in wood, envelop the space in warmth.

Wooden corridors

The house has a total floor area of ​​125 square meters, split between ground floor and a mezzanine floor. A 10-meter-long, lake-facing glass wall dominates the interior of the house, with the double-height, open-space living area overlooking the view opening above the lake.

The clean lines and the iconic geometric form include a guest bedroom, sauna, and a modern kitchen gallery, in addition to outdoor spaces such as a breakfast deck, a dining terrace, and several other storage and technical facilities.

The glass pyramidal top is designed to allow for 360 degree views over the magnificent surroundings from within the house.

The use of natural, high quality materials will bring out the natural texture of the house to fit the extreme beauty and wilderness of its immediate surroundings.
