The Honka Kontti collection has been designed for relaxed living among nature. The compact spaces have been designed in a way that eliminates everything that is unnecessary or superfluous. The large landscape windows offer an unobstructed view of the surrounding landscape. Here, you can focus on what really matters and become one with nature.
The award-winning industrial designer Harri Koskinen designed a compact and modern cabin collection for Honkarakenne, celebrating their 60th anniversary this year. The collection includes compact and modern holiday cabins and a sauna that can be combined in various ways.
There is nothing unnecessary or superfluous about these cabins: the surrounding nature plays the leading role. The most recognisable feature of the collection is its likeness to a corridor, which allows the creation of a long and gallery-like view. It breathes and lets in natural light.

Scandinavian minimalism for natural living
Harri Koskinen has become one of Finland’s most respected, internationally successful young designers. His designs are characterised by functionality and clarity. The Block Lamp designed by Koskinen is considered a classic piece of Nordic design.
My warm relationship with logs was born in my youth, when I used to build log houses with my uncle during my studies. Our cooperation with Honkarakenne had begun in my childhood landscape of Karstula, Finland. I visited the Honkarakenne facility to meet log building professionals, and we immediately decided to start cooperating for a new collection.

Interiors inspired by short but bright summers
Honka Kontti collection made its first appearance at the annual Housing Fair Finland in Pori on 6.7. – 5.8.2018. The cabin interiors have been designed by the talented Finnish interior designer Maru Hautala, whose blog Marulla is full of joy, crafting and happy everyday life. The interior design of the Kontti cabins on display at the Housing Fair in Finland has been realised in partnership with high-quality Finnish brands Secto Design and Genelec.
The Kontti cabins have been decorated for life. The decoration has been inspired by the short but bright Finnish summer as well as happy holiday-goers. The interiors have been realised with high-quality Finnish products and natural materials.

Perfect for holidays
The buildings work well as guest houses, studio apartments or even offices. The ecological solid wood Honka Kontti cabins are also excellent for accommodations. The cabins with their large landscape windows will offer all visitors unforgettable experiences of nature. The cabins and saunas in the Kontti collection can be built on the same plot in different combinations. The protective wings of the terrace offer privacy, so the cabins can be placed adjacent to each other without compromising the peace of each inhabitant.
All models are available with mono and pitched roofs, making it easy to find an option that fits the style of any existing buildings. The cabins can also be equipped for all-year living.

The spatial solution for the large Honka Kontti is simple: the wet spaces situated in the middle of the building split the space into a living and bed room. The tall windows, reaching from the floor to the ceiling, coupled with the sliding doors, open up the interior to the nature outside and let in natural light as well as fresh air.

The premise of the Kontti sauna is to let the bathers see the nature around them. A large window lets the landscape in, and into the soul of each bather. Additional comfort is created by two adjacent showers.
