Muuratsalo Experimental house

Architect : Alvar Aalto
Year : 1953
Location  : Muuratsalo, Finland

"The summerhouse at Muuratsalo is not only a place to live and work but is also a sort of experimental house. It is located in the lake country of north-central Finland, one hour by motor boat from the nearest railroad station. Two wings of equal length set perpendicularly to each other, one containing the living area and the other the bedrooms, form a square court which is closed to the exterior by means of high walls. The exterior walls of this court are developed as mosaic-like experimental walls, divided into about fifty areas in which different types and sizes of brick and ceramic tile with different methods of jointing are used, so as to test their effect from both the aesthetic and practical standpoints. The lean-to roof rises steeply over the living area towards the west wall."
