Designed and built by 20-year old Robin Falck (now 27 years old industrial designer). Designed it prior to his military service in 2010 and built it during the summer of 2011 just before his military service. Took him two and a half weeks to finish it. It located in the beautiful Finnish archipelago of Sipoo. With a beautiful view over the sea. The cabin was designed to be built without a permit. Just under 9 meter square.
“I wanted to have my own place. I found this beautiful slot and I have decided to design a small cabin for me. I also decided to maximize this small space, to use recycled materials to build it myself. During summer, in June, I started building my cabin. It took me two weeks to build it.
The angle and the size of the window give the interior more natural light and you can admire the stars, during the night. On the first level, I set up a lounge area and a micro-kitchen. The upper floor is for sleeping and storage. All the materials are local and recyclable and I have brought them by hand on the scene in order to not affect the nature. When I have finished the cottage, I named it Nido (bird’s nest in Italian).” Briefly, this is the story of the cabin named Nido, told by the young designer Robin Falck from Helsinki, Finland.
