Pyramid House Features Glazed Observatory and Lake Views

VOID Architecture completed the development of Pyramid House, a charming residence exhibiting clean, contemporary lines. The project is located in Sysmä, Finland, and comes with a total surface of 125 square meters (1,345 square feet).

“The house, built on a steep plot facing the shore of a Finnish lake, takes advantage of the outstanding beauty of its surroundings by creating special connections that are suitable for different seasons and activities,” the architects said.

The living area is split into two levels to better adapt to the existing steep terrain and clearly define its internal functions. A spiral metal staircase adjoins the stone fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows capture the magical views.

“A pyramidal roof culminating in a fully glazed nature observatory defines this wooden house set on a square footprint,” the architects added. “Looking down from the observatory, the many levels of the house appear stacked against each other, while the fully glazed wall facing the lake is also visible.” Enjoy the virtual tour!
