Alvar Aalto and composer Joonas Kokkonen became friends while they were members of the Academy of Finland at the same time. The first sketch designs for Villa Kokkonen were drawn at a restaurant where Aalto and Kokkonen went to eat after visiting the site. The fan-shaped house is divided into three parts: the bedrooms and kitchen, the dining and living room, and finally the composer´s own large studio dominates the house.
