Villa Mehu by Elis Sinistö
Villa Mehu in Kirkkonummi is an architectural ITE environment built by the freethinker and philosopher Elis Sinistö in the Veklahti forest. It is a village of huts that nature is taking over slowly but surely. The mysterious environment is about living on the margins of society and an alternative way of life in which recycling plays a role.
The environment is not maintained or repaired, so the public visit the site at their own risk.
