Raili-Kaarinan Pihlaja
cottage or villa, Repovesi - Verla, Kouvola, 4+1 persons

Raili-Kaarina tells tales about the growing prosperity of Finland in the 60’s when after the war, the country dominated by agriculture developed into an industrialized society.  It was typical in the architecture of the era to renounce the old and replace it with new fashion. The big windows, low ceilings and flat roofs were in.
