Using cardboard as its main building material, Wikkelhouse is a cutting-edge sustainable house with a beautiful design and exceptional constructive strength.
Wikkelhouse is a flexible concept. Individual segments are linked together into a little house, a fair booth, a showroom or an office using invisible links. Fiction Factory is a creative and innovative company in Amsterdam, can be your partner for a tailor made version.
The base of Wikkelhouse is ‘virgin fiber paperboard’, which is made from Scandinavian trees. This so called goldboard, is wrapped around a huge mold, with a method patented by RS Developments, while environmentally friendly glue is added. This creates a tough and insulating sandwich structure. By this wrapping process a heat insulation and construction method are integrated in a sustainable way. Afterwards each segment is sealed in a waterproof aluminum outer shell.
Wikkelhouse meets the criteria for temporary or permanent housing. It is about eight times more durable than traditional construction.
Wikkelhouse can be placed within a day and can be supplied with glass facades or closed. It is a unique and contemporary design, that creates livable, unique and creative spaces.
