Architecture by Alvar Aalto 15: Villa Skeppet, Tammisaari


The booklets in this series present buildings designed by Alvar Aalto, with introductory texts based either on Alvar Aalto’s own writings or on articles written by architectural experts. The contents are enlivened by photographs and architectural drawings of the buildings then and now. The series has been published since 1976.

Aalto designed this house for his friends the author Göran Schildt and his wife Christine. The lower parts of the villa are built of white rendered brick, whereas the large, fan-like living room which rises above the entrance and garage front is a timber construction, clad with vertical weatherboarding. The living room, which opens onto a wedge-shaped balcony, has large landscape windows on the seaside.
