Olek is an avant-garde, contemporary artist that has created a home located in Kerava, Finland that is lined with a knitted crochet fiber in a bright hot pink color. The house is a vintage home that has been redesigned by Olek to acts as a symbol of hope for the local community.

The house offers a contrast between old and new, mixing together the 19th century architecture of the space coupled with the modern designs and artistry by Olek. The artist specializes in fiber art and the home is covered in a series of crocheted pink panels that are stitched individually and then knitted together to cover the face of the home. This includes the sides as well as the roof.
