Unusual place to stay.
A 20-minute drive from the centre of Helsinki, on the island Vallisaari, there was a wooden structure with a solar battery on the roof. Project designer Robin Falk – housing in minimalist style Nolla – mounted outdoors in an uninhabited place, to demonstrate how people can live without harming the environment.
Hut will not replace the usual urban or suburban house. But she would fit the role places to stay, for example, at festivals, in parks or nature reserves, where the traces of human presence should be minimal.
Nolla area is only nine square meters, the main material for its construction was plywood and wood from the local forests. A large window installed in the front of the hut, made of polycarbonate for security purposes.
The construction rests on the legs, the height can be tailored to a specific installation location. The construction does not leave behind any traces, and the entire cabin as a whole can be disassembled and transported to another place a few people without the use of heavy equipment. In the project the dwelling is no unique details, the construction is going as a designer and DIY repair only encouraged.
On the roof with one hand, a solar battery, and with another – large mirror to protect from overheating. Such a surface is useful in the warm season, but it can be replaced by a second battery. Inside the hut except the beds there is a small stove that runs on biofuel.
While Nolla is a prototype, but Robin Falk promises to develop it and to adapt to different climatic conditions.
