Project O Cabin

Finnish designers Aleksi Hautamaki and Milla Selkimaki purchased a 5-acre island two years ago, on the edge of the Archipelago National Park in Finland, and have since built this self-sufficient summer house that includes a sauna, a guesthouse and a workshop. Named Project O (after the Swedish word for island), it features two cabins on the site, the main cabin has a central covered outdoor area that separates the living area from the bedrooms and bathrooms, whilst the second cabin houses a workshop and a sauna. The self-sufficient cabins source their energy from roof-mounted solar panels, and use filtered sea water for drainage, sinks and toilets. Hot running water and the floor heating is produced by the sauna´s stove.

If you want to know more about the project, you can find them on Instagram, or follow their blog.
