Haiku – A log home designed for a good life - draws inspiration from Japanese harmony and the purity of Nordic forests.⠀

The building blends into its delicate surroundings in a manner that respects nature and protects the trees and rocky terrain. The house is built around an atrium and a Japanese garden. The big sliding glass doors blend the border between the interior and the exterior. The sauna area will feature a calming spa resembling an onsen, a hot spring.

Low-emission materials, innovative solar power systems, and smart technical solutions will reduce the carbon footprint of housing and help ensure a sustainable future. ⠀

Haiku has been designed for Honkarakenne in a comprehensive collaboration by architect Marko Simsiö, interior architect Maru Hautala and landscape architect Asako Hashimoto. ⠀
