Photo shoot at the Suvikumpu Housing Area by Raili & Reima Pietilä. The mix of dwelling types and sizes in the plan contribute to the impression of repetitive variety. These buildings were built in 1962 of in situ concrete with other exterior surfaces of wood and plaster. The concrete is rendered as horizontal wood siding and painted in different shades of green to match the surrounding forest: spruce green, pine green, and birch green. The plaster is snow white.
