The Housing Fair in Finland will be held soon, this time in Tuusula from 3 to 31 August 2020. It is an annual event for everyone interested in all things related to housing and it is set up in an area where actual houses are built and decorated for the audience to visit. We have completed two homes in the fair area, both of which provide a new perspective on housing. The Honka Huomen single-family house was designed to appeal to all five senses. Villa Mikael & Sanni has been rated as Finland’s most accessible home, due to its outstanding solutions. Welcome to being among the first to explore our sites!
Honka Huomen is a log home that promotes wellbeing
Honka Huomen is a smart home that promotes the good life and cherishes its residents, itself, and the environment. This house is health-promoting throughout its lifecycle. Clean indoor air is secured in real time by embedded wireless humidity sensors, safe construction materials, and a smart building system that regulates the heating and ventilation.
Like a nature excursion in your own home.
Environmentally friendly solutions include an electric car charging point and solar panels, as well as the smart building system. Honka Huomen also promotes wellbeing through its beautiful details and smart space solutions. The smart building system adjusts the lighting and sound to create atmosphere. The tranquil overall effect is rounded off by the harmonious decor by interior designer Maru Hautala.
“The primary theme of the interior is peace and tranquillity. I chose natural materials and safe, M1-class materials, and favoured Finnish manufacturers.”
Relax in the unique conservatory, where flower artist Kreetta Järvenpää has created a lush plant installation, Orangerie. In addition, a unique sound world, based on Nordic nature and seasonal variations, has been created for Honka Huomen.
Villa Mikael & Sanni is a home of smart ideas
The unique Villa Mikael & Sanni was designed to meet the needs of World Championship hip-hop dancer Mikael Turtiainen, who was injured in a tram accident, and serve the family of his helper, Sanni. Mikael is in a continuous rehabilitation process – the new home is highly adaptable and provides clean indoor air throughout its lifecycle. This is the only house in Finland to take accessible construction this far.
Each square metre of Villa Mikael is designed to help.
Mikael can move around the house independently, since the interior is built on the same level as the yard. In addition, Villa Mikael has no thresholds or ramps. Smart solutions and automation make everyday life easier. For example, the doors open electrically and the upper kitchen cabinets and lower level of the dishwasher can be raised or lowered, even by Mikael’s service dog, Kingi. Kingi can go out into the yard by itself, thanks to the ID chip in its collar.
“I can devote my energy to rehabilitation instead of coping with everyday challenges. I can’t wait to move in.”
Safety at the Tuusula Housing Fair
Housing Fair Finland and the municipality of Tuusula want to ensure the safety and comfort of all visitors and workers at the fair in August. A safety plan has been drawn up in cooperation with the health and safety authorities, with guidance on arrival at and moving around the fair grounds. Safety instructions will be continuously updated on the Housing Fair’s website. Tickets are being sold in advance on the basis of the date and time spent at the fair. You can buy them from our online store in June 2020.VISIT THE SITE
