A unique modular housing concept made from cardboard. Sustainable, tailor-made, build up in a day and adjustable at any moment.

All week at Sectie-C: Hall 10 Outside | Sectie-C

Wikkelhouse is what you get when an everyday material finds a groundbreaking purpose. Using cardboard as its main building material, Wikkelhouse is a cutting-edge sustainable house with exceptional constructive strength, made up of 1.2 meter deep segments that can easily be (dis)connected.

Looking for a contemporary office or holiday home? Temporary housing or a fair stand? Wikkelhouse can be whatever you want it to be. The basic construction of the house is made up of 1.2 meter deep segments that can easily be connected and disconnected. The core of Wikkelhouse is top-quality cardboard, wrapped around a unique patented house-shaped mould. Multiple layers of cardboard are bonded together with eco-friendly glue. To protect the material, the cardboard is waterproofed using breathable foil and finished with wooden cladding boards. The result is an incredibly robust sandwich structure with optimal insulation qualities. With a weight of only 500kg per segment, Wikkelhouse doesn't need a foundation and can be placed anywhere. Each house can be extended with a smart ‘Home’-segment including a kitchen, shower and bathroom. It can hold glass of closed facades. Since Wikkelhouse is sustainably produced and made of materials that have minimal impact on the environment, it is 3x more eco-friendly than traditional housing. Moreover, the segments can be reused over and over again and are 100% recyclabe.
