Wikkelhouse may just be the sustainable solution to an affordable home that you can transport just about anywhere. Only thing you need to consider is where you want to park it?
Designed by the Amsterdam-based Fiction Factory, the ingenious Wikkelhouse is a little home made out of robust and durable cardboard and finished in wood. All materials used are sustainable, right down to the biodegradeable glue used in the manufacturing of Wikkelhouse.
A one-of-a-kind space, Wikkelhouse can be used as a holiday home, guest space or office space.
Wikkelhouse is made up of 1.2 metre-deep segments that can be easily connected and disconnected, making the desired house flexible.
Each Wikkelhouse is tailor-made by specialised craftsmen, and you can add windows, different finishings or your own colour scheme to the standard Wikkelhouse.
Being modular, the price is based on how large you desire the house to be, and can be made to accommodate a kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and living room. The options are as long as you wish the house to be.
The 100% recyclable house, which is 3x more eco-friendly than traditional housing, has an expected life span of a minimum of 50 years.
Even if you want to sell up, Wikkelhouse is easy to transport and can be placed elsewhere to the new owner.
Wikkelhouse is available in the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, France, UK and Denmark.
