The Majamaja concept combines self-sustained green energy use, rainwater collection and a circular water purification system, with resource optimisation and functional space-usage.
The inspiration for Majamaja comes from the Finnish archipelago, its minimalistic tradition and living in harmony between human and nature. It is a concept for a pioneering solution for future off-grid living with a minimised environmental footprint. No landscaping nor any permanent changes to the grounds are needed for putting up the hut. The concept is based on high-quality design and a resource-optimised wooden building system, combined with a patented off-grid technology for green energy production and water purification. The concept was initiated by Finnish architect Pekka Littow and launched with a three month demo building exhibition in Paris in summer 2019. The first of five units of the Majamaja Helsinki archipelago village in Eastern Helsinki was put up in 2020.
