This incredible living room, is a 14 x 14 meters square, but you could never imagine you are into that if you don’t see the plans, because of the ‘organic’ shapes and the walls that doesn’t meet the ceiling. There’s no geometrical order in the room and the structure of the house is quite complex. As an example, the location of the fireplace, it has no symmetry or formal situation and it has an sculptural singular form.
The relationship between the indoor and outdoor is one of the main points of interest of this Finnish house to me. Another one, could be the materials chosen by Alvar and Aino Aalto (I haven't mentioned the architects until now, I know there may be no need), a huge range of wood types and white painted bricks for some interior walls, as it was a Mediterranean house.
There’s a lot to say and more written about Villa Mairea, I only want to add one more thing about this ‘almost experimental’ building from 1939, the fact that this project is the result of a large process, including changes and improvement decisions even when the construction job had started.

And, as usual, I want to pair this antique fire-places with a wine, but this time I’ve chosen the wine that we uncork every summer before we go on holidays… And Sparkling Italian one: Muscat.
This is a sweet and low in alcohol wine, produced in Asti, North- Italy, perfect for a desert or an appetizer.
Now Bodegas Ochoa, a spanish winery produces a Moscato wine, here in Navarra, I will taste it and I'll tell you...
Have a great weekend!
