Nowadays many architects are experimenting with construction materials while creating new projects. They use not only iron containers or toughened glass, but a simple pasteboard as well. This exact material was chosen by the Dutch architects to be the basis for a small, yet rather solid house. Professionals from Fiction Factory architectural company have spent 4 years for development of this project.
The Wikkelhouse (translated from Dutch as “the wrapped house”) consists of modules, which are made of the recycled corrugated pasteboard. The module`s walls are 24 layers of the pasteboard, fastened together by the construction adhesive. The external part of the module is then covered with the lacquer, providing the waterproof finish. The modules inside are planked with the natural wood, are of 1,2 meters wide and are fastened together. Thus, the house`s size might be increased as much as the customer wishes.
