The Villa Krona.
Positioned on a remote island in the Gullkrona Archipelago, Finland, the ‘Villa Krona’, a single family residence designed by Helsinki-based practice Helin & Co Architects has been nominated by the world architecture festival for an award in this year’s house category. perched high upon a cliff overlooking the Baltic Sea, this segmented dwelling and veranda gradually unfolds to reveal unobstructed vistas of the sunrise and sunset along with changing weather of the seasons. Autumn storms send thrashing waves towards the structure allowing them to gradually freeze within view from the interior. Immersed in nature, inhabitants are provided with a dynamic retreat from monotonous environments.
