This 839 square foot contemporary cabin in Virrat, a small town in Finland 170 miles away from Helsinki, has no running water or electricity. Sparsely furnished with only the essentials, the cabin building is well-insulated and relies on wood burning stoves. Vegetables and herbs are cultivated on site and fishing is recommended at the nearby Vaskivesi Lake. As Avanto Architects write, "The simple and ascetic life at the countryside differs dramatically from the hectic city life and provides a possibility to live a life with a minimum impact to nature."
