It might be small, but the Noa House is far from a simply assembled cabin in the Estonian countryside. Jaanus Orgusaar was inspired by the elaborate shape of the rhombic dodecahedron, translating it into a unique architectural form on a manageable scale. The complete project functions beautifully as a compact summer cottage for the designer's family.
The hexagonal floor of the delightfully geometric dwelling stands sturdily upon just three stilt-like legs. The six walls that enclose it are not the standard rectangles that one might expect; rather, each one is an alternating rhombus that zigzags its way around the structure. Several separate units of the prefabricated Noa House can be combined as modules to form a honeycomb arrangement for multiple rooms. Built by Katus, the charming timber-clad domiciles are complete with quirky fisheye fenestration.
