There is a tiny cabin in Finland that hides a lovely living room, and you get to see it!
Some years ago, young Finish designer Robin Falck decided he needed a place to call his own. After having found the perfect slot to build his small cabin, Falck set out to build it himself, ending up with a tiny house that has one of the loveliest minimalist living room we have seen in a long time.
What the designer was going for when picturing this country house design was a way to maximize the small space, at the same time he used recycled materials to obtain a more natural interior. So, after having the concept mapped out in his head, Robin Falck started to build his ‘Nido’ (which translates to nest in Italian).
What is amazing is that the designer managed to have his tiny house built in only two weeks over the Summer of 2010! If you observe closely, you will see that “the angle and size of the window gives the interior a lot of natural light, you can even admire the stars during the night,” said the designer on his website.

So, how does one create a livable space in such a tiny house? Well, Falck went on to explain that “on the first floor, I have a lounge area with a micro-kitchen. The 2nd story loft is for sleeping and storage. All the materials are local or recycled and carried to the spot by hand to keep the nature untouched.” The result was a minimalist living room that makes the best of eco-design and makes you wish there were just a few more square meters of it.
The natural interior is an obvious shout out to eco-design. The decoration is simple, with subtle notes of Scandinavian design and light colors, so as to enjoy all the daylight the small cabin gets during the day.
Fun fact: the small size of the construction is due to the housing laws of Finland, where you have the right to build a house with less than 30-40 square meters without special permission.
