Villa Oivala · Finnish Architecture Navigator

In the 1910s, the architect Oiva Kallio gained fame as a villa designer. The architect's own summer-house, Villa Oivala, built on the island of Villinki near Helsinki in 1924, is one of his main works. Externally a modest, grey, boarded building, it opens surprisingly on to a closed atrium courtyard which is painted blue.
