Cardboard Wikkel House by Fiction Factory. Amsterdam
Wikkelhouse from Amsterdam-based Fiction Factory is a sustainably built, customizable cardboard-based house that was designed to last for up to 100 years.
Named Wikkelhouse, which translates from Dutch as Wrap House, the completed prototype comprises a series of interlocking cardboard segments that each weigh 500 kilograms.Each of these tubular components is 1.2 metres deep, and can be connected and disconnected to extend or reduce the length of the building. They also make it easily transportable.
Each section is made from 24 layers of cardboard. These layers are wrapped around a house-shaped mould to achieve a rounded gabled form, before being bonded together with “eco-friendly” superglue to create a robust and insulating shell.
