Robin Falck’s lakeside cabin in Finland is just 96 square feet, has a 50 square foot loft, and required no permit to build. It took him about two weeks to build it in 2010 and the total cost was about $10,500 in materials. Loosely translated Nido means Bird’s nest in Italian, which speaks to the feeling created inside by the large lake facing window open to the lake.
As you might have guessed Robin is a designer – the careful attention to detail and balanced un-box-like design might give that away. You can find him living & working in Helsinki. In addition to building himself a micro cabin for fun, he also works on illustrations, product design or interior design.
