Project of a small residential building Project of a smallA cardboard house seems incredible. Nevertheless, it was possible to observe how the most eminent architects and designers use this material for the construction of massive structures, housing for disaster relief and even bridges. The Dutch design studio Fiction Factory presented a micro-house, built of multi-layer cardboard, which is said to be able to last up to 100 years. The main space can serve as a workplace ... ... and dining area The idyll of suburban life The so-called Wikkelhouse (literally "house of the wrapper") is made of durable corrugated cardboard, which was assembled using environmentally friendly glue. Main material for construction Multi-layered cardboard ensures its durabilityMulti-layered cardboard layers are wrapped 24 times around one of the modular segments of the dwelling using a large rotating mechanism. This method leads to a solid and insulated assembly. Wrap Process Then this module is 1 thick.2 m and weighing 500 kg can be combined with other modules to form a larger structure, eliminating the need for a monolithic base. The modular design provides scalability, flexibility during storage and transportation, ease of assembly and adaptation to the individual features of the project. Each module has a compact size.After transporting the modules to the site, the assembly takes only one or two days. The cardboard is covered with a waterproof and breathable Miotex film and is lined with pine planks. According to the company, Wikkelhouse can stand for decades (protective film must be replaced every 30 years). However, modules can be moved to any place for reuse, and they are recyclable. Pine gives the house an elegant and classicThe appearance of the Window can be located anywhere. Kitchen, bathroom and shower are embedded in the form of "smart home segments." Inside the house, the walls are sheathed with plywood, which gives the interior a minimalist but natural warm look. The small round window fits perfectly into the overall design. Nothing extra Minimalist elegance Like good old times Modern version of a cabin in the forest. Each modulecosts about $ 4,500, and the full version of the basic Wikkelhouse is expected to cost about $ 80,000. The company is currently working on a standalone version. Her representative says: “Cardboard is an incredibly undervalued material. No other building material has such ease, strength and isolation. Most people think that cardboard is only suitable for boxes. No one believes in the possibility of creating a house of cardboard. However, it is possible to build an excellent housing. It's just that we are not used to this yet. ” Wikkelhouse is not just an intriguing modern micro-house design, but also a new, exciting way to turn simple cardboard into durable and insulating material. Would you live in such a house?
