What is your view of sustainability?

The Nolla cabin in Finland has been making headlines worldwide as an exemplar of sustainable living. Built in 2018, the A-framed structure was designed by Robin Falck and fitted out with innovations developed by Neste. Energy inside the cabin is supplied from solar panels, with a Wallas stove – powered by Neste MY Renewable Diesel™ – ‘fuel made 100% from waste and residue raw materials’ providing the cooking and heating facilities. To roll out this sustainable vision to other parts of the world a dozen blueprints are up for grabs, to allow 12 people the opportunity to replicate the cabin where they are.

“The way we travel has a direct impact on our emissions and sustainability. Sharing the blueprints is a sustainable way to bring this design to larger audiences,” said Robin Falck, the designer of the Nolla cabin. 

For a chance to win, ‘post a picture of a scenery you wish to enjoy out of the unique triangular window on Instagram using the hashtag #mynolla along with a short explanation of what you would use the cabin for’. Building time is between 2 to 7 days and materials must be arranged by the winners.

“The project was a success and helped generate global interest around sustainable living and alternative lodgings. We saw this as an opportunity to continue talking about sustainable ways of spending time and travelling, and wanted to take the cabin to a world tour. Thus, we are organising a competition that will allow 12 people to build their own Nolla cabins,” said Sirpa Tuomi, Marketing Director at Neste.
