Extract from the Finnish Architecture Biennial Review 2014 jury report:

“The streamlined building forms part of a great Finnish tradition whilst embracing a contemporary idiom. The thinly plastered white walls match the textured exterior of the neighbouring Otahalli sports hall designed by Alvar Aalto. This guesthouse is also used as a test site for monitoring energy consumption and intelligent building management solutions.”
