Live Work Space (Part 2): The Aalto House and studio by Alvar Aalto, Helsinki-
Aalto designed his Helsinki home and Studio in 1935. The double height studio features a gallery that could be used to view architectural models and plans from above. The formal living room and dining room on the ground floor is flooded with light thanks to the huge south facing windows. There is another informal living room, with fireplace, on the first floor that was used by the family. Aalto’s furniture and lighting, produced by Artek, features prominently in the house, as well as lighting by Poul Henningsen, produced by Louis Poulsen. For images of the exterior of the property see previous post (HERE). For more interior images click (HERE).
