150 Square Feet: Modern, Modest & Cozy Finnish Cottage

More like a living room than a home away from home, this Finnish cottage was designed to supplement and provide relief from the everyday living space of a family living a few miles away in Helsinki.

The result is a little relaxing, sitting or sleeping, area with a bit of lofted storage for the inevitable stuff you want to get out of your way and a kitchen area for light cooking (convertible to a homework area for the kids) – no need for a shower, though, with home close at hand.

The entire structure is set up off the ground and could be moved intact as needed, but otherwise sits in a simple small plot of forests with other traditional Finnish retreats around it. Designed by Verstas Architects with photographs by Andreas Meichsner.
