Helsinki-based design firm Avanto Architects has designed Four-Cornered Villa in Virrat, Finland. In designer’s words, “The cross like shape of this simple villa reaches towards four very different views. The space is open and defined at the same time. The exterior is treated black and to contrast the interior is very light. The building is insulated well and heated by wood only. There is no electricity or running water. The simple and ascetic life at the countryside differs dramatically from the hectic city life.”
