I’m currently finishing off a set of working drawings, its the stage where you get into the nitty gritty of how everything fits together. Today, as I detail up the timber cladding, I’m reminded of several buildings in Helsinki that caught my eye. Its a traditional architects pilgrimage to see the work of Alvar Aalto in the flesh, what I loved about his work was the humanity, the textures and the beautiful detailing of each junction…. now back to those joinery details….

(You can see more of Alvars own house at the Apartment therapy online house tour.)
