Off-grid cabin living has become quite appealing as of late, but is being positioned as even more realistic than ever with achievements like the 'Kynttilä' cabin. Designed by Ortraum Architects, the cabin is characterized by its linear shape that is accented by a triangular roof that gives it a familiar form to admire from afar. The structure is constructed using cross-laminated timber (CLT) along with larch board cladding on the exterior, while the interior area boasts 15-square meters that is perfect for short stays or even long-term living, if desired.
The 'Kynttilä' cabin is situated on Lake Saimaa and features an ethereal design that will glow in the darkness in the evening when the lights are turned on inside.
