Villa Rauhanniemi by Studio Joanna Laajisto

The secluded lakeside cabin of Villa Rauhanniemi is a perfect example of how architecture can be used to connect people with nature. Designed by Finnish architect Joanna Laajisto, the cabin is made of wood and glass and has a sloping roof that reflects the surrounding landscape.

The interior of the cabin is simple and functional, with a small but well-equipped kitchen, a large living room with a fireplace, and three bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. The cabin also has a covered terrace, which is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the views of the lake.

Villa Rauhanniemi is named “Rauhanniemi” which means “Peace Peninsula” in Finnish. The cabin is designed to take advantage of the natural light and ventilation, and the interior is decorated with simple furniture and natural materials. The cabin is also equipped with solar panels and a wood-burning stove, making it a sustainable and environmentally friendly choice.
