This residential project located outside of Helsinki is a modern abode that boasts both a warm fireplace and an invigorating at-home sauna. Central to the Finnish way of life, saunas have a multitude of health benefits and make this suburban home complete.

The project, titled 'House M-M,' was designed by Helsinki-based architect Tuomas Siitonen and features a specific layout created with the goal of maximizing the property's surroundings while carving out a space that was clearly their own.

This stylish Nordic home, in addition to boasting an at-home sauna, was also conceived around the notion of creating a wooden building that protected the family's privacy from neighbors. The residence was also required to include a single apartment with a separate entrance for one of the owners' mother.
