The two share a passion for home museums, which showcase not only ways of living in different periods but also solutions created from what is available, atmospheres and history through people and places.

“To the horror of our children, we have combed the majority of Finland’s home museums. My first dream profession was archaeologist, and the biggest impression I’ve ever experienced in a built environment was in Pompei. This place brings history to life in a truly shattering way.”
