Villa Valtanen by Arkkitehtitiomisto Louekari

  • The treetop chalets  Villa Valtanen by Arkkitehtitoimisto Louekari hold you close to nature. Inside and out the primary design features log cabin style, with pine beams touching every structural surface. It’s a romantic scene north of the Arctic Circle, reaching to the top of the world in Rovaniemi, Finland. Just about all the materials used to build the unit were provided by local companies with exception of the imported solar panels, batteries and composting toilets.  Quaint and cozy, they host just enough space for two, complete with fully functioning kitchen, dining space and a sleeping nook. Creatively cut windows draw eyes to the view of the hills of surrounding forests. The community porch takes the conversations outside where coats are advised; however Finnish design of this kind tends to warm the heart naturally.

    Allison ABOUT ALLISON PARKER - Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
