Villa Rosa was built in an old single-family housing area, which has been densified during recent years by subdividing plots. Villa Rosa and its neighbouring building stand in a place originally occupied by a one-storey single-family house with a large courtyard. Because neighbours are near in every direction, the southwestern courtyard of Villa Rosa is bordered by low wings with a sheltered terrace between them. The tall sliding windows of the living room and the sauna wing open up to the terrace. The upper floor of the building contains the master bedroom with a balcony facing the morning sun and a hall connected to a roof terrace. The small structures on the plot – summer kitchen, storage shed and bin store – belong to the same architectural family with the main building, and together with a well-tended garden the buildings form an intimate village milieu on the plot.
