Are your architectural and home decor tastes best described as a unique blend of streamlined contemporary and comfortable wooden chic? This might not be a concept that you hear about often but it’s one that makes for a beautifully calming and casual home, just like you’ll see inside the House Savukvartsi in Vantaa, Finland!

Have you always dreamed about spending a beautiful weekend in the wilderness, enjoying all the natural wonders that a gorgeously calming forest has to offer? Well, you’re certainly not alone in that desire. In fact, some people want to experience that type of relaxation so much that they actually choose to build their homes in wooded areas in order to create that kind of lifestyle for themselves full time.

Anu Puustinen and Ville Hara from Helsinki-based studio Avanto Architects have designed this contemporary cabin for themselves.
Located in Virrat, a small town in Finland 170 miles away from Helsinki, this 839 square-foot black and white cabin has no running water nor electricity.
Heated only with wood stoves, far from the city noise, the cabin offers restful tranquility and relaxed pace of life with a minimum impact on its environment.
