    Default Do you like the look of Humlegård House?



    Humlegård House is the stark-looking, year-round residence of a former Finnish TV documentary producer. He moved to this house, located in the town of Fiskars, 78 kilometers west of Helsinki, from a central-Helsinki heritage apartment. Many aspects of Humlegård, especially its placement to respond to the forces of nature, resemble the owner’s childhood home, a large country manor in central Finland.



    Designed by Kimmo Friman of Friman Laaksonen Architects of Helsinki, Humlegård House is situated on a small, flat hill so that the north-south line runs diagonally through the building. This is the traditional way of placing a building so that it functions optimally as an energy efficient and comfortable dwelling in the harsh, Finnish climate. Protection from the wind and maximum use of sunlight are primary considerations, and the placement of rooms is as much dependent on how much the room needs heat and daylight as it is on how the residents use each space.



    The floor plan resembles the layout of a traditional peasant farmhouse, split lengthwise into two. The house consists of three multi-function areas: two large living rooms linked by a loft with a bathroom and walk-in closet below.



    In a typically Finnish fashion, the building appears simple, stark and utilitarian yet exudes a harmonious and stylish form & function sensibility. The owner and architect selected each building material carefully, opting for traditional, natural materials. “I did not want materials of which we did not have decades of experience,” said the owner. Horizontal spruce board – left untreated for maximum structure breathability -- is the main feature of the interior.



    The spruce-clad outer facade weathers into a beautiful gray color that matches the stark surroundings. The east-facing facade is clad with galvanized corrugated-steel that protects the wall from rain and sun and also reflects excessive sun away in the summer. The placement of windows was determined by the requirements of the interior spaces. A separate, tiny log sauna, also designed by Friman, was built later east of the main building. By Tuija Seipell

    Honestly, the exterior looks like a glorified trailer to me.

    Default Would you stay at Art Deco Hotel Montana?

    The Art Deco Hotel Montana is situated in a quiet residential area, overlooking Lake Lucerne and its surrounding mountains, yet only a two minute walk from the historic town centre and lake promenade.
    Alexandre Dumas’ description of Lucerne as ‘a pearl in the world’s most beautiful oyster’ still holds true. The hotel stands majestically above the lake shore. Built in 1910 in the grand manner, it is a celebration of Art Deco with a twist of bravura design. It has every luxury including its own funicular to the lake side!
    Besides culinary delights you can also enjoy fantastic panoramic views from most rooms and the restaurants Scala and Terrasse. The Louis Bar is famous for its high life, jazz music and whisky selection.
