Laidback Villa Mecklin in Finland by Huttunen Lipasti Pakkanen Architects

Helsinki-based Huttunen Lipasti Pakkanen Architects designed the Villa Mecklin whose sheltered terrace extends over the summit of a rock. In the center of the large terrace is the fireplace that is accessed through a hatch in the decking. There is also a stove-heated cabin for guests. Another interesting feature of the villa is its material made of wood surfaces that have been left untreated and will turn grey naturally.  [via ignant]
