Seashell House in Finland by Olavi Koponen – A Nook of Calmness
If you prefer to avoid crowds and dislike anyone to disturb your private life then you will be delighted by the Seashell house in Espoo, Finland from Olavi Koponen. This house is his own one and it pretends to be one of the most interesting houses at the Asuntomessut, the Architecture and Design exhibition taking place in Finland. Kotilo (this is another name of this unusual dwelling) was designed around a fireplace of which almost all the spaces of the house are twisted around. It has a grass roof and hasn’t got many windows. The Seashell house offers necessary privacy. The house is rather spacey and simple. Kotilo’s design is not sophisticated but it gives the feeling of harmony for those who like silence and loneliness.
