Located on Vallisaari, an island in Helsinki, the Nolla cabin is an A-frame mirrored holiday home can be assembled, dissembled and transported without heavy machinery or leaving traces in its surroundings. Compact and entirely mobile this 9m² (97 ft²) dwelling has been designed by Robin Falck for Neste’s Journey to Zero campaign, launched summer 2018, a Finnish renewable energy company.
The cabin structures have been fastened together with screws, so it can be taken apart and put back together like a puzzle. The pedestals are adjustable, so that the cabin can adapt to different kinds of terrain. In essence, there are no special parts used in building it – a replica of any part can be made from scratch by anyone, all they need is timber.
The culture of repairing things is disappearing, and we’re quick to buy a replacement rather than fix what we already have – but that’s not a very sustainable way of living. I find modern-day helplessness and the inability to make things with our own hands slightly scary, so I wanted to make the cabin easily repairable and thus give it an infinite number of life cycles.
