The inspiration for Kalaranna's interior design has come from life itself. From long walks to adjacent and far off beaches - where curiosity and travel have led. The choice of materials reflects the granite rocks of the Nordic shore, the volcanic Pacific beaches with their black sand, light driftwood washed ashore on stormy islands, and the pieces, bricks, concrete and terrazzo of old buildings smoothed out by our very own Kalaranna sea.
The ceramic tiles used in the interior have been inspired by former industrial buildings that have now been turned into modern cultural centres and office buildings. This is how harmony is created between the abandoned and gradually renewing buildings one can see lining the cultural kilometre. Natural and light wood in the living quarters has a bright feel and it keeps reminding that you’re at home after all.
Sand dunes, high beachgrass, greyish-blue sky and fluffy sea foam – the minimalistic openness of the beach that is also considered by Scandinavian design. The interior design of the Kalaranna homes that has been inspired by Nordic beaches features large-scale light boards and a lot of natural wood.
