What is Nolla?

Nolla cabin is a prototype of a sustainable summer cottage, developed by Neste. The design of the Nolla cabin, envisioned by Robin Falck, is focused on minimizing CO2 emissions. Nolla is a part of Neste’s ongoing Journey to Zero concept that aims to bring the world closer to carbon-neutral living.

The Nolla cabin experiments and explores how we could live on less, whilst spending more time enjoying the nature around us. It aims to challenge and inspire visitors to live with a minimal footprint and give the chance to experience the results first hand.

Build your own Nolla cabin

The design of the cabin was kept minimal and sustainable solutions were put into place wherever possible. We suggest using the following building materials:

In the Nolla cabin, namely spruce beams and pine veneer were used.

The cabin can be taken apart and put back together like a puzzle.

Solar panels
The solar panels absorb sunlight as a source of energy.

A mirrored surface on the other side of the roof
The surface reflects heat and helps create a cool space inside.

Polycarbonate for the window of the cabin
Fossil crude oil based feedstock can be replaced by Neste renewable feedstock in the production of polycarbonates.

Wallas stove (for cooking and heating)
The stove runs entirely on Neste MY Renewable Diesel™, made 100% from waste and residue.

The estimated price for the materials is approximately 10 000 €, not taking into account local variations in material costs.
