Spiraling Green-Roofed Espoo House Clad in Siberian Larch Up for Sale in Finland

Listed on a real estate site in Finland, this curious Espoo House doesn’t come cheap at €690,000, though admittedly we are not well versed on that country’s current real estate market. But what makes it so curious, apart from its unique curvilinear design , is the funky use of a bizarre material palette on the inside, which includes carpet, shingled interior walls, concrete and gorgeous ceramic tiles.
Heating is supplemented with an earthen fireplace  in a swirling living space with seating that lines the curved walls. Large cutouts in the Siberian larch-clad house ensure plenty of daylighting and natural ventilation  and the kitchen counters are lined with the most striking white tiles adorned with blue script. A different kind of tile lines a cocoon-like shower in the bathroom, rounding off one of the most unusual homes that has appeared on this site.
