  • I could have moved in straight away! There was even a walk in closet. The handles covered in leather to keep them warm. I loved the bath tub. Seems Aalvar covered it all. Good to combine this house....  more

  • Really fabulous example of what can be done with unlimited funds in two years with a top designer (Alvar Aalto). Given that he was to create a space for art to adorn the walls, he managed to create views out of all the windows to rival the art. The pool and sunbathing area is soooo kitch, and the garden simple sophistication. Bravo!
  • It is rather impessive ! The genious of Aalto is proven in concept!.
