Architectural drawings of The Aalto House – Alvar Aalto Shop
Large living space with windows filling one wall down to 30 cm above the floor. The next space that follows is raised up the same level so that the window sill becomes the floor of the new space two steps up, the first step being a freestanding bench. That space has openings high up on a wall which gives light from several different directions and levels. Simple play of the few elements a house consists of. By Alvar Aalto, his home, located in Munkkiniemi area in Helsinki.
A small mezzanine on the second floor creates a corridor underneath that leads into several smaller spaces from the main room. Designed by Alvar Aalto, Alvar Aalto’s home, located in Munkkiniemi area in Helsinki.
The L shaped building creates a inner private courtyard with the forest edging the plot. The red brick outer and lighter white inner with the closed building pulled a bit further in giving that in between terrace spaces. By atelier137.
