Kalevala village is a holiday villa resort on the shores of the Lammasjärvi lake, in Kuhmo, Northern Finland. It is located in an old pine forest, on a small hill above the lake, providing spectacular views towards the lake. Kalevala village consist of 24 apartments in 18 villas and a lakeside spa building. The spa offers facilities for relaxation, sauna, massage and exercise.
The two villa types are one-storey single-family villas and two-storey duplexes. They are simple in form, easy and inexpensive to construct, yet elegant in their look and feel. They offer luxury and holiday atmosphere, and large glass surfaces towards the views and night sky.
The villas are located in two rows, in this phase1 planning, where the second row of duplex buildings receive views towards the lake between and above the row of single-family villas. Spa building is located on the shore.
The area is built from wood, which is clearly shown also in the interior of the buildings. The design extends its courtesy towards natural values and maintains sustainability. The construction of these buildings can be made locally, from locally harvested materials and workforce.
