Karjaa-based architectural practice, Casagrande Laboratory, has recently completed the Apelle project, a contemporary family home is located in Karjaa, Finland.
This wooden structure rests in a natural harbour- a sheltering pocket surrounded by bed rocks and trees.
From the architects:
“House Apelle is part of nature. The surrounding forest has been architecturally articulated into a shelter for a family of contemporary natives. The house is in the forest as much as the forest is in the house – the architecture is a mediator between man and nature."
