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.
