We are very happy to announce that we have won the competition for a new housing block in Jätkäsaari district of Helsinki, a competition arranged by the city of Helsinki in collaboration with Alvar Aalto foundation, Ministry of the Environment, Aalto University and SAFA.
The jury thanked the proposal for its surprising, skillful and efficient housing design that offers a natural solution for multigenerational and collective living.
The project continues.
We are happy to have been selected for the group exhibition Fake/Authentic at the Museo d’Arte e Scienza in Milan in April 2019. The exhibition, curated by AMArchitectrue and Rocco Vitali, will consist of a collection of furniture reflecting the themes of fakeness and authenticity, designed by young architects.
Thus we are excited to make our debut at the Milan design week with our work:
a copy of a marble table that we have never seen.
This is a publication of the student works for the course Synergy of Architecture and Furniture. In the beginning of the semester we asked the wood design students of XAMK to conceive a piece of furniture to the Kettumäki building that was designed by a celebrated Finnish architect Lars Sonck in the end of 1890’s. Observing the architecture was their starting point. In their work the students were to define a specific relationship between the piece of furniture and the surrounding interiors.

Happy to be part of the latest issue of the Finnish Architectural Review that concentrates on exhibitions.
Salty sea breeze, a stony beach, late October rain. An old fishing and bootlegger village in Estonia is the location of our latest villa project in progress.
Alliance of architecture and furniture. With this course we are embracing the prevailing situation where the architectural space and furniture are conceived by different authors yet at the same time we are longing to reach a sense of unity that can be experienced in so-called total works of art. The architectural setting of the course will be Lars Sonck’s historical log building of Kettumäki, that, having lost its original furniture, is currently missing a decent furnishing of its own.

The journey of Precarious Domesticity continued from Suomenlinna to the stables of an old manor house in Hamina. A stable converted into an exhibition space was the location of the “4xLindroos+Gross” exhibition presenting the artistic production of the whole Lindroos family. The 19th century log house, owned by an architect couple Teiju Autio and Seppo Serola, provided the exhibition an idyllic setting in the center of Hamina.
