Villa Snow White was designed by Helin & Co Architects in Espoo, Finland and is a building accommodating a family home, as well as a showroom. According to the architects, “an obsolete old villa was cleared out off the property before the construction of the new building. The neighbors of the property are a ten year old flat roof detached house and a villa from the 50s. The old trees of the property played a big role in the designing process. The openings of the interiors were set by their location. The concrete structure of the building was casted on the location over steel pillars and cladded with snow white plastered tiles. The surfaces of the interiors are light and the floors are mostly solid oak and limestone. The main entrance locates through a closed outdoor atrium, facing the West towards the evening sun. The atrium can also be entered from the kitchen and via a bridge and a staircase from the sauna. The spaces live with the Northern light and adapt the white surfaces to the scenery in which it locates all the way to the distant horizon of the sea.”
