The Experimental house (1952-54) was Elissa and Alvar Aalto’s self-designed atelier and summer residence. It was inspired by the idea of an Ancient Roman atrium. The Experimental House is located in a beautiful spot on the rocky shore of Lake Päijänne, sheltered by the coastal forest. This is where Aalto had the freedom to experiment with different materials, forms, techniques and proportions.
