Villa Q in Finland

Villa Q in Finland Avanto Architects

The modern city villa is located in North Helsinki, in an area characterized by old wooden villas. The sculptural form is motivated by the dramatic setting: the summit of a rocky hill. The diamond-shape of the main building creates sunny courtyards both to the south and the west. The facades are clad in broad boards painted grey.
