The 270 square foot Noa house features a hexagonal floor plan and is built entirely from wood, with the exterior boards treated with iron oxide for a silvery aged finish. Since each side of the house, from the walls to the roof panels, are identically sized rhombuses, additional modules can easily be added to the tiny cabin. Elevated on three feet, Noa lacks the need for a foundation, which makes the home “more cold-resistant than a usual dwelling.”

Inside, the cabin’s plastered walls are painted a bright, warm yellow. Round, fish eye-like windows frame views out to the Estonian countryside and nearby forest. Orgussar, who has plans of adding two more modules to this summer cottage, has also teamed up with the prefabricated building company Katus to manufacture and sell the Noa design.
