Villa Skeppet was a gift by the architect Alvar Aalto to his friend and biographer Göran Schildt and his wife Christine. The building located in Ekenäs in Southern Finland was the last detached house designed by Alvar Aalto, and the building came about in close collaboration between the architect and the occupants. In Villa Skeppet, the key objective of Alvar Aalto’s architecture about the comfort of the ordinary person is integrated in a unique manner with the sculptural form and expression that characterised the architect’s mature production.
This book is the first detailed presentation of Villa Skeppet. The building is discussed not only as an outstanding architectural achievement, but also as a unique outcome of the friendship of two men.
