A Finnish Cottage Retreat

Located just a few miles from Helsinki, this tiny cottage was designed as a secondary living space and retreat for a family.


The cottage has a basic but functional interior with a kitchen, sitting/sleeping area, lofted storage and a wood burner for heating.

The tiny cottage doesn’t actually have a bathroom as the main family house is nearby. The light tones, and lack of furniture/stuff helps to create a relaxing atmosphere. The cottage’s size allows it to be moved to a new location if needed.
