Remotework has recently become a
common and widespread working arrangement for many people and organisations. We
ourselves have been working remotely for years, and drawing on our own
experience, we have set up the Haani Creative Hut to provide an inspiring
remotework place for anyone looking for a change to their routine business or
home office and wishing to combine work with relaxation.
Designed for solo workers, small teams and families
The Haani Creative Hut is a
pleasant and cosy remote workplace located in the domed landscape of Haanja
Nature Park. We welcome solo workers and people working in pairs as well as
families or even small teams. You can work remotely and stay here for both shorter
and longer periods, supported by various technical means and other
possibilities. In addition to the creative working environment and the distinctive
features of the area, we are also willing to offer our professional know-how, in
case you need a fresh eye or a creative impulse (in content creation,
communication and media, creative therapy, etc.).
Are you looking to take time off to
recharge your batteries or need to focus on an important project that needs to
be completed? Are you searching for new ideas with your small team or wish to brainstorm
in a different environment? Would you like to explore new fragments of culture
and visions of life, learn new skills, gain new experiences or meet new people?
Everyone’s desires and needs are different, so are the solutions we offer.
Productivity by effective slowdown
Peace and silence, freedom and
creativity, focus and productivity – working in the middle of nature in your
allows to experience effective slowdown. It brings a new perspective to your work and topics you deal with, helping
to find clever and innovative approaches. But more importantly, far from your
usual working and living environment, you will have a fresh view on life and
the surrounding world. This will recharge you with new energy and strength to
move mountains, and change gear the way you like. Haanja Upland undoubtedly has
its invisible impact - the warm life energy that influences your new worldview in its special way!
The Haani Creative Hut is a convenient
and practical remote workspace heated by stove and equipped with a kitchenette that
includes everything you need for cooking just the way you are used to. If you
wish, you can dine at the nearby Suur Muna Café, which is famous for its
exciting tastes and high-quality food made of local ingredients. You can also
order catering for you or your team, to have delicious food support your
effective remote work. Coffee and tea – also local herbal tea – are included in
the price of accommodation.
Cosy living with exciting options
The Creative Hut can accommodate up
to seven people: there is a large double bed in the main bedroom on the upper
floor and twin beds in the smaller bedroom, as well as a double sofa bed on the
lower floor (see images in the gallery). If necessary, an extra bed/mattress
can be placed both downstairs and the upper floor. Extra mattresses would
accommodate a couple of more sleepers if needed, but then there would be less privacy.
The washroom (toilet and shower) is spacious and cosy. Also available for you
are numerous additional options, including a sauna, massage sessions, thematic
workshops, hiking, sports, introduction to traditional culture and many other
activities (see further information below).
The hut is equipped with all
technical amenities needed for comfortable working: we have over-the-air
internet connection (speed up to 20/5Mbps) and WiFi (the quality of the
connection depends on weather conditions and service quality of the internet
provider, Telia). The desktop is well lit and speakers can be paired with any
device with Bluetooth connectivity. Additional options include extra desktop
