Alvar Aalto liked to put his office and home together. Arrived in Turku and Helsinki during the years, Aalto are renting in the same building two sets of local, as a family home, apply for another firm. Later, 1935--36 years, Aalto designed and built at The Aalto House is , as his architectural design work at the Helsinki card. The house of family life and the integration of Architects two functions. Post-war reconstruction period of the 1950s, Aalto firms get a lot of public construction projects, expanding the team to make Aalto the architect firm had temporarily moved to the center of Helsinki Finnish Engineers' Association Building in (also Aalto himself design). Quickly followed in the Aalto House Aalto Annex bought a piece of land, 1954--55 years of design and construction of this Studio Aalto. Since Aalto firm finally has its own independent house.
Aalto wrote in the project description: "Although the author refers Aalto  is not particularly accept the so-called" team "system, but have to admit that, due to the increasing requirements of the technical aspects of the architect's creative work in does contain content part of the collective work of "the house based on this expansion: an L-shaped planar side is Aalto's private work space, the other side is the office staff work space and services.
Aalto's private studio space is a big wedge. Arc toward the inner courtyard of the wall opening panoramic strip windows, the height of the highest point there is a small loft and the whole house a unique skylight (used to illuminate should climb on the walls of vines inverted triangle). This space as well as its independent entrance, have been emphasized in the indoor and outdoor design. And the Aalto House and Muuratsalo Experimental House , as before entering the inlet section of the road is my favorite part.
Office staff work space appear to be normal. Its two long sides are not parallel, with evenly spaced beams, perspective relationships are subtle adjustment from both ends to see if a different rhythm and depth. It's easy for me to think of Alicante University administration building Siza design. Also pent-roof windows in the whole house and the space constraints of the internal hospital staff's attention.
Aalto on the "ruins" the theme of love is well known. In this project, combined with the base of the original inner courtyard directly elevation is designed as a "Roman amphitheater." Irregularly shaped stone paved seating, grass growing out from the gap, the vertical bars are arranged on the wall to grow and ?????? front of the house two auxiliary vines like, Aalto is clearly more attention Decade even after fifty years after his house will show temperament.
