Unique wood home Meteorite supports interconnected living close to nature

Meteorite, designed by Ateljé Sotamaa, is a residential building located in seemingly remote Kontiolahti in eastern Finland.

Approached on foot through the woods – as preferred by the architect – it appears a mystical dark object among the trees. The inside of this ultra-modern, ecological, three-storey wood building, however, is another world of open interconnected rooms that integrate with the surrounding landscape.

This project has been longlisted in the small building category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
