Cabin has everything, without water and electricity.
Although we often say that Norwegian housing and cottage architecture has a special proximity to nature, there is still a bit left until we reach the Finns unique ability to associate buildings in a creative and natural way to the landscape around the house.
Examples of Finnish nature architecture are the archipelago cottage with a bonfire space in the middle of the terrace and a minimalist cabin of 14 square meters.
This Finnish architect family’s summer cottage of 79 square meters is located on a small island on the southwest coast of Finland.
All materials had to be transported to the construction site with a small boat.
This meant that builder Anders Adlercreutz had to be very picky in the material use and the way he designed this house for seven people at.
This was not exactly the site of heavy wood and rough dimensions.
Lightweight construction carries great architecture
The solution with two horizontal, wooden beamed wooden beams facilitates a lightweight house construction and a unique foundation foundation, says Adlercreutz to Hytteliv.com
This means that if this building were to be removed for one reason or another, the nature of the site would restore its original state after just a few years.
– This building fulfilled our requirements for a summer cabin. The house is well placed, the materials are suitable for the site, and the sum of all this is reflected in the architecture, expands the architect.
The good life without water and power
There is no electricity or water supply at Dömskär. This means that the owners get all the water they need for cooking from a well.

They cook the food on a gas stove. The fridge is also gas-based. On dark autumn nights they get the light needed from a pair of light bulbs. These are powered by a solar panel mounted on the roof.
The house is heated by wood wood stoves. The spinning box is located in a separate outhouse.
Dark architecture pearl in the middle of the island
– This modest technical standard was a deliberate choice from our side. The simplicity fits well here in the islands, says the owner.
The bedrooms, some small and some quite large, are located on the outskirts of the very bright and dominant living space. The slippery mountain right in front of the cabin serves as a continuation of the interior.
The entire family lives on 11 square meters
– This is Finnish architecture, so we like to see it, comments Jan Förster, Director of Finnish-Norwegian Cultural Institute in Oslo.
