A special little house, made out of cardboard. Sustainably built to last. And suit all your needs.Dutch design company Fiction Factory have spent the last four years designing an eco-friendly, modular home made entirely out of cardboard.
Called Wikkelhouse, which means wrapped house, the home’s steel frame is literally wrapped in 24 layers of corrugated cardboard.Using a modular shape, Fiction Factory are able to build a full sized, but small home using rolls of recycled corrugated cardboard.
The cardboard is fed to a machine that then applies an eco-friendly adhesive before rolling it onto a rotating steel frame. It’s finished with a waterproof coating before wood paneling is applied to the inside, providing a rustic aesthetic./designindaba
These sandwiched layers are then wrapped around one of the dwelling’s modular segments 24 times using a large rotating machine, resulting in a strong and relatively well-insulated assembly.The modular design allows for scalability, a flexible layout and ease of customization and assembly.
