The wooden monolithic building can be seen as a typical peasant house split lengthways 

Humlegård House is located a few kilometers from the centre of the old iron-works community of Fiskars, which in recent years has become a centre for culture. It was placed on a small hill in the traditional way, so that the north-south line runs diagonally through the building f. Towards the south is an open expanse of field, on the west side is a courtyard delimited by outbuildings and the east side overlooks a lake via a densely forested slope. The wooden monolithic building can be seen as a typical peasant house split lengthways. The spruce-clad facade is unostentatious, whereas the tall galvanized corrugated-steel clad facade is punctuated with large, freely placed windows, their placement determined by the requirements of the interior spaces. The living spaces are divided into three multipurpose sections: two larger rooms and a volume between them comprised of auxiliary spaces and a loft.
