Nolla Cabin : Helsinki
A zero-emission escape in Finland
Nolla Cabin is a vacation rental tiny house located on the small island of Vallisaari, a 20-minute boat ride from downtown Helsinki. Vallisaari is in a nearly natural state and home to hundreds of plant and animal species. Notably, 1000 butterfly species of which a hundred are extremely rare.
Nolla Cabin was designed in 2018 by Finnish designer Robin Falck. Named Nolla after the Finnish word for zero, the mobile cabin is built with sustainable materials – local pine and plywood – and is designed to allow visitors to have a zero-emissions holiday. Nolla Cabin is designed to demonstrate a simple lifestyle, close to nature, with minimal emissions and waste. Nolla Cabin has an A-shaped wooden structure, with mirrored sides and a facade with stunning views of the surroundings.
The 9 sqm cabin consists of two camping beds, a small kitchen area, with a Wallas stove, which can be used for cooking and heating. The cabin is equipped with linen bed sheets, towels, bathrobes, and natural cosmetics. The cabin does not have running water, so bathing takes place at sea, and ecological dry toilets are available a short distance away. The design excludes most modern commodities, focusing instead on self-sufficiency and low-impact living. The electricity supply of the cabin is generated by solar panels that are attached to the cabin’s roof. The cabin does not have wifi, but with such views, no need for internet. Profits made from the cabin will be donated to The Ocean Cleanup, which develops advanced technologies to rid the world’s oceans of plastic. Nolla Cabin and its surroundings provide an idyllic environment for a relaxing getaway to unwind and break away from daily habits and obligations.
Nolla Cabin is, in essence, an experiment to explore how to live on less, whilst spending more time enjoying the nature around.
