With their Journey to Zero campaign, launching this summer, Finnish renewable energy company Neste is looking for ways to build a world with minimal emissions. The first lap of this journey, the Nolla cabin, has been designed and built to demonstrate a way of living that has a minimal carbon footprint in every aspect.
The cabin functions entirely on renewable energy and excludes most modern commodities. The cabin itself is a compact and entirely mobile 10 square meters dwelling, that can be assembled, dissembled and transported without any heavy machinery. It demonstrates a low-impact daily life, that is based on self-sufficiency and renewable solutions – thus generating minimal to no emissions.
Located on Vallisaari, one of the most diverse islands in the Helsinki archipelago, Nolla is a compelling space for simple living in the realm of nature – yet in the immediate proximity of the Helsinki city center. The cabin and its surroundings offer an excellent environment for a relaxing getaway from everyday life, where visitors have the chance to wind down and distance themselves from their daily routines and obligations.
