An Ostrobothnian house immortalised on a collector coin Ostrobothnians are represented by a familiar sight on this commemorative coin. Houses in Ostrobothnia were traditionally erected to an imposing height and painted red. A family's house was modified according to their situation, with extensions and new rooms being added as the family grew. Ostrobothnian houses are considered to represent the pinnacle of folk architecture, and some even see classical and renaissance influences in them.
