JKMM won the Saunalahti children’s house competition with the design titled “Lowly Worm”. True to its name, the house worms its way through some rocky terrain in Espoo.

It has two storeys and houses a kindergarten as well as a children’s health centre, protected from the street by a wavy, façade worked in stone. Between the Kummelivuori hill and the house there is a sheltered play area.

Inside, upper windows in the shape of cones let light filter into the connecting lobbies. The graphic artist Aimo Katajamäki has created splendid wall paintings for the children to enjoy.
