Villa Merino is a private leisure home for two families, delicately built on a slope. Situated amid a hillside and a beautiful forest landscape in Lapland. The simple shape respects the traditional architecture of the area but also has a unique modern twist.

In the interior, every detail has been carefully considered. The log walls are left visible along with other wooden and natural materials. This brings cosiness to the modern and high spaces.


The building has three floors: The first floor is equipped with a relaxing spa & sauna, cozy fireplace, gym, maintenance, and technical rooms, these last two are well hidden to keep the visual harmony intact.


On the second floor is where one finds the kitchen, the dining, and the living room which has a high roof that makes the space feel broader. A vast glass wall opens the living spaces to the fascinating landscape of Lapland. On the same floor, there are two bedrooms.


Finally, there is the children's floor,  with three comfortable bedrooms and a loft that opens to the high space of the living room which gives a deeper feeling of spaciousness.
