City Cottage, Finland Style!

This city cottage offers the best of both worlds – urban conveniences and a country retreat. Finnish architects Verstas designed this compact cottage with big ambitions of nature, comfort, convenience and contemporary style – a combination that’s hard to come by! Located in Lauttasaari, Finland, this compact home design measures just 14m2, but it comfortably accommodates a family of four with everything you want and need to enjoy the simpler things in life. Just two kilometers from their family house and the daily grind, this mini cabin is surrounded by nature, enjoyed through massive windows on every wall. And because the footprint is small, that means minimal environmental impact in terms of construction and energy use. In fact, this passive solar home can operate on sun alone! And because it’s just a stone’s throw from their everyday house, this sweet retreat also eliminates that hours-long, gas-guzzling commute to “cottage country.” Verstas Architects
