Welcome to the Top of Finnish Architecture and Music!
Alvar Aalto originally designed Villa Kokkonen´s beautiful atelier for music. However, a swimming pool, pergola, log sauna and, especially, a perfect view to Lake Tuusula will be among the first details of Alvar Aalto´s architecture to be explored during a unique artistic tour hosted and guided by pianist Elina Viitaila and opera singer Antti A. Pesonen. Finlandia Hymn composed by Jean Sibelius will be the climax of this 45-minute Finnish experience.
Mrs. Elina Viitaila and Mr. Antti A. Pesonen are the charming hosts of Villa Kokkonen. So much dedicated to take care of the house and its visitors since 2009.
Instead of giving a straight-faced lecture the hosts of Villa Kokkonen arrange an artistic tour introducing their guests to the Top of Finnish Architecture, Music, Design and Nature.
It requires only a bit of walking in the forest garden, then continues by listening to somewhat gorgeous music in the atelier which is framed by Alvar Aalto´s timelessly beautiful design and architecture. After the tour and music it might be just the right moment to enjoy Villa Kokkonen´s hot pot buffet and coffee/tea with homemade moisty cakes.
Villa Kokkonen´s own kitchen gives you an awesome taste of Finnish homemade food and cakes. Every visit by appointment (8 visitors at minimum) could be ended with Finnish Hot Pot buffet including Elina´s homemade moisty cake, dark roasted coffee and tea.
