Syrjämä’s atelierhome Villa Ville
Villa Ville aka Viljo and Kaisu Syrjämä’s Italian-style villa studio home with an exhibition of their work.
The house, built by artist Viljo Syrjämä in the early 1950s, is the most significant cultural attraction in Oripää. Known as Villa Ville, the house was both home to an artist family and a studio. Syrjämä was inspired by a photograph of the Monastery of San Marco in Florence, Italy. Syrjämä had received a scholarship for art studies in Italy, but the outbreak of the Second World War prevented him from studying. After the war, Syrjämä decided to bring Italy to Oripää.
The house was designed and built by the artist himself, so it can be considered Syrjämä’s most important work of art. Almost everything in the house is handcrafted, as the bricks on the exterior walls of the house, for example, are made by Syrjämä. The interior and furniture of the house are also designed by Syrjämä, and the house contains plenty of decorative details. Thus, Syrjämä’s artist’s home is a unique object of its author’s life’s work. (aurajoentie.fi)
