Villa Maija

Joarc’s first project, Villa Maija, lies on an outer island in the Finnish archipelago and faces the extreme elements and power of the rugged open sea. During the years, Villa Maija has befriended these elements, and blends in completely with the nature around it. The choice of materials is in sync with the strong, wild surroundings: Siberian larch tree is used both inside and outside; long, sturdy planks run through the ceiling, and the larch tree covers the roof and frames the windows. Beautiful simple details, such as gutters in copper dress up the house.
