Drawing inspiration from traditional Estonian customs, the Muraste Cottage is a modern forest dwelling. The home consists of three units. The two housing the main living area and the bedroom are directly linked. A central terrace connects the main house to the detached sauna. While the former's facade is left in its natural state, the sauna is set apart with a tar oil finish. The contemporary approach continues in the interior with white walls and minimal furnishings. North-facing panels are fitted with large glazed panels, revealing views of the Baltic Sea.
