Looking for better job opportunities, Alvar Aalto and his family moved from the small town of Turku to Helsinki in 1933. Besides job opportunities, Aalto also was also looking for the perfect location where he could build his future home. After living in two different apartments in Helsinki, the Aaltos bought a piece of land just outside the city.
Our lives, that’s what our houses should be about and tell.
When I visit/see a house I try to understand a bit about the story of its owner and not only if it is decorated with nice mid-century furniture or is an architecture masterpiece. That’s why I immediately loved this house!
Few days ago, in The Best 4 Posts of the Week About Mid-Century and Design, I wrote about the FAVN sofa by Jaime Hayon for Fritz Hansen: an Arne Jacobsen inspired sofa launched last week at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan.
Yesterday I was, finally, reading the April issue of Case Da Abitare and, guess the house of who was in there? Jaime Hayon and his wife Nienke!

Who Alvar Aalto was?
As many of you already know, Alvar Aalto has been one of the most important Finnish architect and designer of the XX century.
Aalto has been considered the father of the Modernism in Nord Europe.
As Finnish, he was tightly linked with the local tradition and history, as we can see in all his works, using natural materials, warm colours, and undulating lines.
