NOA Cabin

The rhombic dodecahedron may not sound cozy, but the NOA Cabin concept by Estonian designer Jaanus Orgusaar makes this shape, this basis of his intriguing housing concept, into something positively inviting. The cabin utilizes a shape found in nature (garnet, honeybee hives, diamonds) to create 270-square-foot modules that give the impression of a rounded interior due to a lack of acute angles.

The walls were first plastered with limestone paste, then painted with cottage-cheese paint.
The unique shape of the dwelling creates a very open interior.
The structure rests on three feet, so it doesn't require a foundation.
The wide windows provide a great view of the surroundings.
