FINLAND / Kumpula Residence

The Kumpula residence is located in the port town of Inkoo, 60km west of Finland’s capital Helsinki. The owner Ykä Kumpula bought this 10,000m² land close to both the ocean and the woods, and asked his architect cousin Jussi Kalliopuska to design the house. Most of the land was clayish and soft, so the building was planned on the rocky south hill where the land was firm and had a splendid view. The concrete base was bolted to the rock, and a concrete block structure with 2 floors above ground and 1 floor below ground was built. The long side of the acutely angled building is the main building and the short side is the annex connected by a deck. The spacious 22m wide main building running east to west has a dining room, kitchen, bureau and main bedroom. The floors are planned along the slope running east to west, creating 4 skip floors. The ceiling height which changes from 3.2m to 7.5m creates spaciousness, and the randomly-sized windows on the south and north walls frame the beautiful scenery. A clean heating system using heat from the pipes running 2m below ground was selected to heat the floor. The garden has a gentle slope which was artificially created over the flat land. A pond was created surrounding the rivers that were originally running in the land, and an outdoor kitchen was planned to enjoy nature.
