Villa Mecklin was designed by  Huttunen–Lipasti–Pakkanen Architects and is located in Naantali, Finland. Its highly original architecture got our attention and we are looking forward to your impressions as well. The rocky construction site is both beautiful and tricky but apparently the building process was not at all negatively influenced by the terrain. In fact, after a good research, everything worked according to plan. We particularly like the wooden platform which can be used in many creative and practical ways. Here is some information from the architects: “The main building sits in a small depression in the rock, its sheltered terrace extending over the summit of the rock. One arrives from the harbour to the entrance of the main building sheltered by the trees. After a descent of a couple of steps, the expansive landscape of the western shore, with its long vistas, unfolds. A fireplace has been sunk into the centre of the large terrace, accessed via a hatch in the decking. When the fire is not lit and the hatch is in place, it is possible to use the whole terrace as, for example, a dance floor. In connection with the shoreline sauna, there is also a stove-heated cabin for guests.
