House Riihi is a minimalist home located in Alajärvi, Finland, designed by OOPEAA. The house blends in with the surrounding landscape through its shape and materials. The composition subtly recalls the feeling of a traditional Finnish farm, in which wooden cottages were arranged so as to form a protected inner courtyard with the buildings facing the courtyard. (9)
Treehouse | 'You can see it in summer, The tree’s leaves all aglow, The rain’s watered the wood, So the house’s tree, it could grow. Strong it now sits, still in that old wood, Wishing for children, Wishing it could, See its dear girl, All young once again, And hear her call out, And quiet storms now and then...' ~Rae Hitchings, from'The Treehouse'
