A Finnish architect named Tuomas Siitonen designed a home in Helsinki that gives the homeowners a view of their 100-year-old garden and separate spaces for their kids and parents to live in.

The wooden home is kinked to wrap around the garden it shares with the existing 100-year-old property. The design gives the homeowners privacy from the busy road and railway on one side but maintains a relationship with its neighbor and the beautiful garden.

Siitonen designed the building with two separate apartments: one for the clients and their children, the other for the children's great-grandmother. The larger apartment that the clients and their children inhabit uses the two upper storeys of the house. The smaller apartment for the great-grandmother is accessible from the ground floor.
