This project was called The Professor's House. You enter
through two automatic doors which work like the shutter of
a camera. Inside is a machine taking care of your clothes.
In front of you is a pool where your beautiful wife or husband stands in the water like a Venus or Mars. To the right is the living room.
In front of you in the living room is a wall with panels to
control a lot of machines like a home theater, a food preparing machine and computer systems.
Behind the panel is a machine room for every kind of machine. The facade of the machine room is of glass and the machines make objects move like a sculpture by Calder.
The large area to the right is a hall where private sleeping
rooms can be moved around. The outer wall is made up of
elements containing souvenirs from around the world.
At the left of the entrance is a large hobby room where you can even maintain your yacht.
There are no stairs, but the floors descend in steps, and not too steep. In picture exaggerated.
The lifts are on the outside with sculptural forms.
The fire safety is based on two spirals within each other. And at the middle are fireproof doors for evacuation, and communication.
The lifts are situated so they could function also when the house is on fire.
It was planned in front of Hämeentie 33 (Tavastvägen33),
and the open place was planned to join to the Katri Vala park about 10 meters higher up. This wouild have made a fine center for the area.
Sorry to day: "Helsinki planners have totally '
destroyed the area so no future planning can
repair the destruction done.
The problem has been: either private housing with garden or high rise housing.
This is the house where everybody has a garden. A high rise garden house.
Where efficiency is 20 times of a private house and 4 times higher than of a common high rise house.
Where all space outdoors is garden and green and cars are hidden on the bottom floor.
Where there is safety with a reception at the bottom as in a hotel. And the quality is like in a five star hotel.
The house can be is well adapted to the landscape with the profile of the house like a hill and much greenery on the facades.
When well placed many apartments have a view out on the ocean.
The high rise atrium house
The function of rooms are studied and extremely accurate.
EFFECTIVENESS AND COMFORT ARE MAXIMIZED. PRICE MINIMIZED.
